What Causes Hashimoto's Thyroiditis?

What Is Hashimoto's Disease?

  • Hashimoto's is an autoimmune disorder that causes hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s disease.  It is a condition that which your immune system attacks your thyroid.  The thyroid gland is a butterfly shaped  gland at the base of your neck below your Adam's apple. It is a critical part of your endocrine system, and produces the thyroid hormones that coordinate many of your body's activities.

  • Hashimoto's thyroiditis is a condition caused by inflammation of the thyroid gland.

  • T lymphocytes, a type of cell involved in the inflammation process, invade the thyroid gland cause silent, painless inflammation that destroys it; ultimately, the individual produces little or no thyroid hormone and becomes hypothyroid.

  • The underlying cause of the autoimmune process remains unknown.

  • Hashimoto's thyroiditis tends to occur in families. It can be associated with other autoimmune conditions such as Type 1 diabetes or celiac disease.

  • Hashimoto's thyroiditis is 5 to 10 times more common in women than in men and most often starts in adulthood.

  • Blood drawn from people with Hashimoto's thyroiditis typically reveals an increased number of antibodies against thyroid-specific proteins, including thyroperoxidase and thyroglobulin.

  • The thyroid makes hormones called T3 and T4 that regulate how the body uses energy. Thyroid hormone levels are controlled by the pituitary gland, which is a pea-sized gland in the brain. It makes thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), which triggers the thyroid to make thyroid hormone.

  • In Hashimoto's, there is inflammation.  Hashimoto's is also called chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis.  The result is hypothyroidism which means a underactive thyroid gland. Hashimoto's disease is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in the United States. It can occur at any age in both men and children, but it usually affects middle-aged women.  During aging, the thyroid gland starts becoming less efficient, and produces less of T3 and T4, especially in women.

Signs and Symptoms of Hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's

  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Dry, thinning hair
  • Dry skin
  • Heavy menstrual flow or irregular periods
  • Hoarse voice
  • Excessive or prolonged menstrual bleeding (menorrhagia)
  • Fatigue and sluggishness
  • Increased sensitivity to cold
  • Muscle aches, tenderness and stiffness, especially in your shoulders and hips
  • Muscle weakness, especially in your lower extremities
  • Pain and stiffness in your joints and swelling in your knees or the small joints in your hands and feet
  • Pale skin
  • Puffy face
  • Weight gain - easily or unexpectedly

Root Causes of Hashimotos

  • Stress!
    Stress depletes the adrenals, resulting in adrenal fatigue and starts a cascade that unravels wellness.  Stress management in any chronic autoimmune disease as well as healthy diet and nutritional balancing, along with homeopathy is essential for recovery!

  • Glutamine, Zinc and Vitamin D Depletion
    Zinc and glutamine two substances required for rebuilding intestinal lining. Vitamin D is required for proper gut barrier function. In times of stress, the body will pull these substances from the intestines and use them for other things, such as production of adrenal hormones.  In prolonged stress, there is  low stomach acid which is needed to extract zinc from proteins. Vegans and vegetarians are low in Zinc and glutamine.

  • Gluten Sensitivity
    Gluten sensitivity and Celiac disease are involved in many of the autoimmune conditions including Hashimoto’s, Graves’ Disease and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Lab tests can be done to determine if you have Celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity. Some individuals remove gluten from their diets and find out they were sensitive.

  • Gluten Sensitivity and Cross Reactive Proteins
    Cross reactive to multiple other proteins including grains like rice, quinoa and corn etc. Other may also be allergic or intolerant to  eggs, dairy, nuts and seeds and nightshade plants.

  • Fungal Infections
    Candida is a fungus can cause intestinal permeability, called Leaky Gut Syndrome.  It is involved autoimmune disease and food sensitivities

  • Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
    SIBO is an overgrowth of bacterial in the small small intestine. This overgrowth can be caused by antibiotic overuse, starchy foods and other things resulting in  intestinal permeability.

  • Parasites
    Parasites are can be present. Labs can test for their presence.  

Infections That Can Cause Hashimoto's

These are the top three:

  • Hepatitis C Virus  - has been shown to trigger Hashimoto’s and the thyroid has been found to be a reservoir for this virus if it leaves the liver.

  • Borrelia burgdorferi - is the bacteria that causes Lyme disease. Many Lyme disease patients also have Hashimoto’s disease as well as pyroluria.

  • Cytomegalovirus - is a viral genus of the viral family known as Herpesviridae or herpes viruses.

These are other main infections that can cause Hashimoto's Thyroiditis:
