How serious is Hashimoto’s disease?

Hashimoto's disease is a chronic condition that can lead to damage of the thyroid gland, which can cause the gland to become underactive (hypothyroidism). This can cause a wide range of symptoms, including fatigue, weight gain, cold intolerance, hair loss, and depression. If left untreated, Hashimoto's disease can lead to an enlarged thyroid gland (goiter) and, in rare cases, thyroid cancer. In addition, untreated hypothyroidism can lead to other health problems such as high cholesterol, heart disease, and infertility. It is important to get diagnosed and treated as soon as possible to minimize the risk of complications and to manage symptoms. Treatment typically involves taking a daily thyroid hormone replacement medication to help regulate the levels of thyroid hormones in the body.
