How serious is hashimoto's?

Not serious. Hi. Hashimoto's is very easily treated, and as long as you take your thyroid hormone and the dose is right, your Hashimoto's will not cause you any problems.
Serious but... Hashimotos disease will result in low thyroid function and can be readily treated with thyroid hormone replacement. As it is an autoimmune disease, one must carefully assess each patient for other autoimmune processes and specifically one must test for celiac disease as there is a link between celiac disease and other autoimmune illnesses, especially Hashimotos and Graves.
Can easily be. treated with medication and controlledbut you need to take the medication daily.

Hashimoto thyroditis and severe resistant hair loss, can you tell me about this?

Thyroid & Hair Loss. When Hashimoto's thyroiditis precipitates low thyroid function, hair loss is one of the hallmarks that you are now HYPOTHYROID. You need to optimize the thyroid function, in particular, tisse/cellular T3 (liothyronine) levels in order to reverse/fix this. Often standard treatment with T4 (Synthroid) will not do this. A T4/T3 (liothyronine) combo or pure T3 (liothyronine) is required. https://www.facebook.com/groups/95847031171/ Read more...
