Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis

Common Comorbidities

Hashimoto's is often accompanied by additional health challenges, heightening the need for comprehensive care.

More than half of individuals with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis are managing at least one other chronic condition, and approximately one-third are navigating the complexities of five or more chronic illnesses.

Hashimoto's means more than thyroid care; it's about overseeing your entire health. Stay proactive with regular check-ups and tailored treatment. Don’t ignore the complexity; get expert guidance.

Celiac Disease

Patients with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis may also experience celiac disease, an autoimmune disorder where ingestion of gluten leads to damage in the small intestine.

It is important to recognize and manage celiac disease as it can affect the  absorption of nutrients and thyroid hormone levels, necessitating adjustments  in thyroid medication.

Thyrogastric Syndrome

This refers to the co-occurrence of thyroid disorders with gastric conditions, particularly autoimmune gastritis.

Patients with Hashimoto’s may develop antibodies that attack the stomach lining, leading to nutrient absorption issues and anemia. Monitoring gastric health is crucial for these patients.


There is a notable link between Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and obesity. Hypothyroidism can slow metabolism, leading to weight gain. Managing thyroid hormone levels effectively is vital for weight control and overall metabolic health.

Heart Disease

Hashimoto’s can increase the risk of heart disease, primarily through the impact of hypothyroidism on cholesterol levels and blood pressure. Regular cardiovascular monitoring and maintaining optimal thyroid function are key prevention strategies.


Some patients with Hashimoto’s may also develop hyperparathyroidism, a condition where the parathyroid glands produce too much hormone, affecting calcium levels. This can lead to bone thinning and kidney stones, necessitating regular monitoring of calcium and parathyroid hormone levels.

Every reason to consider the whole picture in Hashimoto's thyroiditis.

Hashimoto's thyroiditis is often accompanied by a range of health issues, including:
Sleep Apnea
Irregular Period
Hair Loss
High Cholesterol
Nerve Pain
Joint Pain
