In brief: Thyroiditis?

If you are referring to autoimmune thyroiditis ( hashimoto's disease)- this at first can cause an overactive thyroid ( hyperthyroidism) followed by decreased thyoid function ( hypothyroidism).
You need to have your thyroid hormone levels balance to achieve balance. The medication may be need for a lifetime or the disease can resolve.
