Thyroid Disease
Thyroid Gland
Hashimoto's thyroiditis is a condition caused by inflammation of the thyroid gland. It is an autoimmune disease, which means that the body inappropriately attacks the thyroid gland--as if it was foreign tissue. The underlying cause of the autoimmune process still is unknown. Hashimoto's thyroiditis tends to occur in families, and is associated with a clustering of other autoimmune conditions such as Type 1diabetes, and celiac disease. Hashimoto's thyroiditis is 5-10 times more common in women than in men and most often starts in adulthood. Blood drawn from patients with Hashimoto's throiditis reveals an increased number of antibodies to the enzyme, thyroid peroxidase an enzyme (protein) found within the thyroid gland. As result of the antibodies' interaction with the enzyme, inflammation develops in the thyroid gland, the thyroid gland is destroyed, and the patient ultimately is rendered hypothyroid (too little thyroid hormone).
What causes Hashimoto's thyroiditis?
In diagnosing Hashimoto's thyroiditis, a physician should assess symptoms and complaints commonly seen in hypothyroidism, examine the neck, and take a detailed history of family members. Blood tests are extremely useful in diagnosing Hashimoto's thyroiditis. The blood tests look at the thyroid function in general. (With hypothyroidism, a high thyroid stimulating hormone and low thyroid hormone would be expected.)
How is Hashimoto's thyroiditis diagnosed?
When hypothyroidism is present, the blood levels of thyroid hormones can be measured directly and are usually decreased. However, in early hypothyroidism, the level of thyroid hormones (T3 and T4) may be normal. Therefore, the main tool for the detection of hyperthyroidism is the measurement of the TSH, the thyroid stimulating hormone. As mentioned earlier, TSH is secreted by the pituitary gland. If a decrease of thyroid hormone occurs, the pituitary gland reacts by producing more TSH and the blood TSH level increases in an attempt to encourage thyroid hormone production. This increase in TSH can actually precede the fall in thyroid hormones by months or years (see the section on Subclinical Hypothyroidism below). Thus, the measurement of TSH should be elevated in cases of hypothyroidism. However, there is one exception. If the decrease in thyroid hormone is actually due to a defect of the pituitary or hypothalamus, then the levels of TSH are abnormally low. As noted above, this kind of thyroid disease is known as "secondary" or "tertiary" hypothyroidism. A special test, known as the TRH test, can help distinguish if the disease is caused by a defect in the pituitary or the hypothalamus. This test requires an injection of the TRH hormone and is performed by an endocrinologist (hormone specialist). The blood work mentioned above confirms the diagnosis of hypothyroidism, but does not point to an underlying cause. A combination of the patient's clinical history, antibody screening (as mentioned above), and a thyroid scan can help diagnose the precise underlying thyroid problem more clearly. If a pituitary or hypothalamic cause is suspected, an MRI of the brain and other studies may be warranted. These investigations should be made on a case by case basis.

First Case Dicovered
Hashimoto's thyroiditis, the most common form of thyroiditis, is an autoimmune disease where the body's own antibodies fight the cells of the thyroid. Also known as Hashimoto's disease, it is named after the Japanese physician, Hakaru Hashimoto (1881–1934) of the medical school at Kyushu University, who first described it to medicine in 1912.

Types of Thyroid Cancer

There are 4 main types of thyroid cancer, and some are more common than others.

Thyroid cancer type and incidence:

Papillary and/or mixed papillary/follicular thyroid cancer: ~ 80%
Follicular and/or Hurthle cell thyroid cancer: ~ 15%
Medullary thyroid cancer: ~ 3%
Anaplastic thyroid cancer: ~ 2%

Thyroid cancer

Hashimoto's thyroiditis is not a reason to avoidpregnancy. However, some women with Hashimoto's thyroiditis do have trouble conceiving. In some patients, supplementation with selenium is used to try and decrease antibody levels. (The theory is that lower antibody levels may lead to better success in conception.) Both before and during pregnancy, the levels of thyroid hormones need to be checked to make certain they are in the optimal range for pregnancy. This is usually within the range for nonpregnant women but at the higher end of the range.
Should I be concerned if I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis and want to become pregnant?
