I’m confused on what Hashimoto is?
Hello all. So I joined this group to get some info on Hashimoto… I was diagnosed this a few months ago through blood work.. I was put on meds. I went in for a thyroid ultra sound a little after, the results were that I have a lot of nodules on the tubes.. So next step is a nuclear scan with radio active iodine later in the week… I’m confused on what Hashimoto Is? What does it Do? Are there things I need to change? Like my diet? Is the only way to help it is by the throid meds? I’m lost, and confused. Can someone please help me. I would love to know the cons of this disease? The ins and outs? The things I need to be doing to help better myself. What are the symptoms of this? Is it like anxiety and depression.? Thank u all so much
