Hashimotos thyroiditis is usually without pain, eventually causes hypothyroidism, but can coexist with graves hyperthyroidism. Two other forms are post partum thyroiditis and "painless" thyroiditis; transient hyper followed by ...Read more
Several: To test for hypothyroidism, regardless of cause, the best test is a TSH level to determine if the pituitary is making high levels of TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) to try to get the thyroid to make more thyroid hormone. Sometimes a thyroid hormone level is done as well. An antibody test (tpo antibody) can show if there are antibodies attacking the thyroid, as seen in hashimoto's thyroiditis. ...Read more
Yes: Worst case scenerio: if you do not take your replacement thyroid medication for a long time, you can actually go into a type of coma (myxedema coma).

Unlikely: I cannot identify any cases implicating rhodiola as a causative factor for autoimmune attack of the thyroid. Long-term safety data is not available. Rhodiola is used in Eastern medicine to treat symptoms of hypothyroidism (fatigue, depressed mood, concentration). I cannot form an opinion as to its effect. ...Read more

I was diagnosed hashimoto's thyroiditis. Is it normal for me to lose weight slow and gain it really fast. What caused this syndrome in my age?
Autoimmune: Hasimoto's is considered an autoimmune disease in which one's immune system starts to attack the thyroid eventually ending up losing thyroid function. This may lead to weight gain if not corrected with thyroid replacement. It is almost always easier to gain weight than to lose weight and thus you will need to watch your diet (less meat, more exercise). ...Read more

Thyroid antibodies: This is an autoimmune disease where the body makes thyroid antibodies which may ultimately (painlessly) destroy gland function, rendering the person hypothyroid. Levothyroxine is the standard treatment for hypothyroidism. We see hashimoto's disease in most age groups. It's far less common in toddlers and younger. ...Read more

Okay: This is usually easy to manage by thyroid replacement as required. A heads-up -- maybe 1% of hashimoto's folks get a vasculitis that can involve the brain and mimic multiple sclerosis; it's treatable but it needs to be suspected before the call can be made. Complications of hashimoto's are rare; you can read about them on your own, get seen fast if the goiter grows fast. ...Read more

Variable: Hashimoto's thyroiditis develops when the immune system misclassifies one or more thyroid proteins as foreign (not belonging to that person) and begins making antibodies that target the protein (s). This can cause the thyroid to become enlarged (form a goiter), develop regional growths, or nodules, or make too little thyroid hormone. Once in a while, it can result in too much thyroid hormone. ...Read more
Autoimmune thyroid: Hashimoto's thyroiditis refers to autoimmune condition where immune system attacks the thyroid gland. This leads to the most common form of hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone production) as the gland becomes increasingly injured. More common in women, especially with age, and tends to run in families, especially those with other autoimmune conditions. Treat with thyroid hormone replacement. ...Read more
