Compounding for Hashimoto's thyroiditis
Hashimoto’s disease, also known as chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis and chronic autoimmune thyroiditis, is an autoimmune disorder affecting the thyroid gland. The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of the neck just below the Adam’s apple. The thyroid produces hormones that help regulate many functions in the body.
An autoimmune disorder is defined as a condition presented by one’s immune system attacking healthy tissues. In Hashimoto’s disease, immune-system cells attack the thyroid’s hormone-producing cells. This usually results in a decline in hormone production (hypothyroidism).
