What is hashimoto's disease? How does it affect hypothyroidism?

Autoimmune: Hi. Hashimoto's (Hash) is the most common cause of non-surgical hypothyroidism, and is an autoimmune disease. It is commonly diagnosed by serum thyroid autoantibodies (TPO and thyroglobulin), and much less commonly by fine needle aspiration biopsy. Hash only causes disease when it destroys thyroid function. Hash antibodies do NOT cause disease, and are only a marker for thyroid autoimmunity. ...Read more

What is a thyroid peroxidase antibody test? Does it diagnose thyroid disease?

What is a thyroid peroxidase antibody test? Does it diagnose thyroid disease?

Thyroid peroxidase (TPO), an enzyme normally found in the thyroid gland, plays an important role in the production of thyroid hormones: A TPO test detects antibodies against TPO in the blood. If you've been diagnosed with thyroid disease, your doctor may recommend a TPO antibody test — in addition to other thyroid tests — to help determine the cause. The presence of TPO antibodies in your blood suggests that the cause of thyroid disease is an autoimmune disorder, such as Hashimoto's disease or Graves' disease. In autoimmune disorders, your immune system makes antibodies that mistakenly attack normal tissue. Antibodies that attack the thyroid gland cause inflammation and impaired function of the thyroid. Your doctor may also order a TPO antibody test if you are pregnant and have an autoimmune disease, especially one that involves the thyroid, such as Hashimoto's disease or Graves' disease. Some people with TPO antibodies may not have thyroid disease. However, the presence of TPO antibodies may increase the risk of future thyroid disorders. If you have normal thyroid function with TPO antibodies, your doctor may recommend periodic checkups to watch for future thyroid problems. ...Read more

Could thyroid eye disease cure itself once hormone levels are balanced?

Could thyroid eye disease cure itself once hormone levels are balanced?

Graves eye disease: Graves eye disease tends to run a separate course from the hyperthyroidism. Fixing the hyperthyroidism will improve the lid lag, which gives the appearance of a "stare". But the proptosis ("bugging out"), inflammation, swelling, double vision, may not improve. You should see a specialist, starting with an endocrinologist, to see if you should be on steroids, have surgery, or other treatments. ...Read more
