Hashimoto's Thyroiditis Symptoms
Hashimoto's thyroiditis is thought to be caused by a combination of genes, age, gender, and possibly whether a person has other autoimmune diseases.
A typical early sign of the Hashimoto's disease is throat swelling near the Adam’s apple where the thyroid gland is located. However, without this noticeable symptom, it may take years of gradual progression before damage to the thyroid is detected. Since inflammation can destroy the thyroid, Hashimoto's thyroiditis' primary symptoms are also similar to an under-active or hypo-thyroid. Left untreated, it can lead to heart disease and high blood pressure.
