My sister has recently been diagnosed with this disease and after some research we have found a link between consuming soy and this disease. If anybody has any information on this, could you please post it on this page. (anon 2-dec 2005)
Hashimoto's is regarded as an autoimmune disease. Arcadian has found a study, but it is not the final word in scientific terms. PMID 11497534 suggests no health consequences on that basis of having soy formula, but this was not powered to specifically detect thyroid disease.
Autoimmunity is poorly understood, but it is accepted that it's a combination between genetic predisposition and exposure to epitopes that sensitise the immune system to particular substances, after which it cross-reacts with the body's own proteins. The trigger of autoimmune thyroid disease is not known, as opposed to e.g. coeliac disease. Hence, I don't think you should sue the soya company for not making this clear on the label - the evidence is not very conclusive. JFW | T@lk 02:15, 4 December 2005 (UTC)
"... conferring a relative risk of 3 in the UK" <-- What does this mean ??
I just found out that I have this Hasimoto's and understand but than don't get it all lot to take in! Any advise for me? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 21:06, 23 June 2011 (UTC)
The famous people section
I know this may seem strange, but I noticed on several cancer pages - there were people listed... and I thought that hashi's is sort of a silent disease that nobody really talks about...nobody is really an advocate for - and nobody knows what it can do. As anyone who suffers knows, it can cause depression and weight gain (Even if treated) - so when I heard that Anna Nicole Smith had it, it was somewhat comforting to know...
but, if you find this inappropriate... then you can delete it.
That's exactly right, not comforting at all, this disease sucks! Nobody knows what Anna Nolce Smith's TSH was at the time of her death in her autopsy report.
- Replace the dose of thyroxine correctly (ie have some monitoring blood tests) and the patient should be fully well - underactive thyroid or removed by I-131 therapy or thyroidectomy surgery is really immaterial (as far as then subsequent continuing well being is concerned, alothough obviously a hurdle for the patient at the time) provided correct replacement therapy is then acheived.

I've found numerous references on the internet to Hashimoto's thyroiditis in research papers about microchimerism. Perhaps this article should mention the possible microchimerism from pregnancy link? - Dougher (talk) 03:33, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
Why is it treatedby thyroxine only?
Please be aware though that some people cannot convert the T4 to T3 so need to take both in order to feel well and gain their full health 1 June 2008
i've recently found a video on youtube regarding the disease that i find pretty entertaining and informative. when i tried to link it, it was denied because of the youtube address. its not promotional, commercial, copyrighted... whatever else wiki is concerned about. if someone wants to help out, or link it to the main page:
- Problem is that Youtube is not WP:Reliable sources, apart from perhaps exceptional circumstances. David Ruben Talk 12:04, 11 May 2008 (UTC)
Needs to be differentiated from Ord's hypothyroidism more
THis article needs to better explain the differences between Hashimoto's and Ords better. It is not consistent on its definition of it. At first it says Hashimotos is caused by T cells then later says it is caused by antibodies. Ords is defined as Antibodies causing it however.
I have Hashimotos.
This sentence is illogical in its categorization of Cyclothymia and Bipolar Disorder:
"Hashimoto's thyroiditis is often misdiagnosed as depression, cyclothymia, PMS, and, less frequently as bipolar disorder or as anxiety disorder."
Cyclothymia is a type of Bipolar Disorder. Bipolar is a spectrum disorder, meaning it goes from mild to severe. Cyclothymia represents the mild end of it.
To be accurate it should read "less frequently as Bipolar Disorder 1 or 2". Or "less frequently as more severe form of Bipolar Disorder."
I have had a website and forum about cyclothymia for 8 years (cyclothmia collective). I come up against this lack of understanding that Cyclothymia *IS* Bipolar all the time. Please help me clear up this misunderstanding.
- Perhaps you would be a good person to make the change here. (Ask not for whom the bell tolls.) --Bobbozzo (talk) 07:02, 6 December 2009 (UTC)
Who is Hashimoto's thyroiditis named for? Just wondering --184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:08, 24 November 2009 (UTC) Never mind... that'll teach me to post before I read the entire article. --220.127.116.11 (talk) 21:09, 24 November 2009 (UTC)
Living with Hashimoto's Disease for 15 years now
[request for medical advice removed]
If anyone can help I would greatly appreciate it. Sincerely, [name removed] — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 00:36, 13 October 2011 (UTC) I dont really do this, but recently my own Hashimoto's has kicked up and it's back to the doctors. I have seen hundreds.When I was 4 they discovered I have Hashimotos and there was a tumor on my thyrod. Scared my mother to death. They thought it was cancer. That was 51 years ago, and if what they told my mother was true, Im about the 8th or 9th child known at the time to have it, not a great thing, lived at ucla med center just about. I have had it so long until the last few months I really have ignored it. I dont recommend that, but it doesnt have to be the awful depressing disease everyone seems to think it is.It sure is better them most you could have. Good Luck to you
