Yes, it is a process: Autoimmune thyroiditis (Hashimoto's) is a process where your immune system is attacking your thyroid. At first your thyroid can get stimulated and you produce too much thyroid hormone (T4), then it can balance out and your T4 is normal. Towards the end your immune system destroys enough of your thyroid gland and your T4 levels begin to drop below normal until you don't produce any. Normal is good
