Are you looking for help for Hashimoto’s disease? RedRiver Health and Wellness Center offers tests for the accurate diagnosis of Hashimoto’s disease. We seek to improve the quality of our patient’s lives by properly addressing the root causes of your disorder through a personalized wellness plan.
A Common Cause of Hypothyroidism
Hashimoto’s disease is a type of autoimmune system disorder. It specifically targets the thyroid gland – your immune system begins to attack the thyroid gland, which causes inflammation. The inflammation results in an underactive gland, also known as hypothyroidism or low thyroid.
The thyroid is a type of endocrine gland located right in front of the neck. It affects your metabolic rate, which is how your body uses energy. It also regulates other bodily functions, which include your breathing, heart rate, and body temperatures, among others.
Hashimoto’s disease affects the functionality of the thyroid and is the most common cause of hypothyroidism in the U.S. We can provide Hashimoto’s disease help to all of our patients who come in for a diagnosis.
Testing and Diagnosis
RedRiver Health and Wellness Center offers a thorough testing process. We personalize our approach to match the needs of each patient – we seek to identify the specific triggers that may be causing flare-ups.
Some of the symptoms of Hashimoto’s disease may include:
- Inability to lose weight
- Sudden weight gain
- Muscle weakness
- Pain and stiffness in the joints
Once we have identified your triggers, we will establish guidelines that are aimed to alleviate the symptoms, which may include lifestyle changes, dietary plans, and other management programs to lessen and improve the symptoms of your disease.
