In brief: Most PCPs and endo

Most internists and endocrinologists are familiar with the disorder. It is an autoimmune disorder that often leads to an under active thyroid.
It is the most common cause of low thyroid hormone levels. There is no treatment for hashimotos per se, but the thyroid hormone levels can be kept normal with medication.
