Who gets hashimoto's disease in us?

Anyone. It runs in families along with other autoimmune problems. It is more frequent as you age. 20% of women on medicare have decreased thyroid reserve or frank hypothyroidism and 85% of the time it is due to hashimoto's.

What do you suggest if I have hashimoto disease. Any one else with it and what do you do for it?

Seek treatment. When your immune system attacks the thyroid, it can "rollercoaster" from HYPER to HYPO thyroid and cause severe swings in energy, mood, pain, etc. A full workup is warranted and treatment will significantly improve your quality of life. Finding the right physician to treat you is the tricky part. For more info, check https://www. Facebook. Com/groups/95847031171/
20 million. Hi. Yep, you're not alone. About 20 million Americans have Hashimoto's. Are you hypothyroid (sometimes it's diagnosed before it causes hypothyroidism) yet? If so, take your thyroid hormone. Hash. Has no effect on life or longevity as long as you take your thyroid medicine and your TSH and free T4 are in a good range.
