Help for Hashimoto’s Disease
Are you looking for help for Hashimoto’s disease? RedRiver Health and Wellness Center offers tests for the accurate diagnosis of Hashimoto’s disease. As a wellness center for Hashimoto’s disease, we seek to improve the quality of our patients' 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: 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 an endocrine gland located right in front of the neck--shaped like a butterfly. 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 thyroid functionality 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.
Complications of Hashimoto’s Disease
Hashimoto’s disease, when left unchecked, puts you at a higher risk of developing a variety of health problems. Some examples include:
- Type 1 Diabetes
- Lupus, a disorder that produces inflammation in the lungs, heart, and other systems of the body
- Premature Ovarian Failure
- Graves’ Disease
- Addison’s Disease
Additionally, Hashimoto’s disease may lead to the development of thyroid lymphoma, a type of thyroid cancer.
Testing and Diagnosis
RedRiver Health and Wellness Center have Hashimoto wellness centers in Boise, Las Vegas, South Jordan, and in other areas that offer a thorough testing process. We personalize our approach to match the needs of each patient by seeking 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 provide help for Hashimoto’s by establishing guidelines that are aimed at alleviating the symptoms, which may include lifestyle changes, dietary plans, and other management programs to lessen and improve the symptoms of your disease.
