Hashimoto's Thyroidism

Post by AbsolutelyFab on Wed Nov 19, 2008 9:21 pm

Hello,

My maternal grandmother, my mother and both of my sisters have Hashimoto's Thyroidism. This is another autoimmune disease that attacks the thyroid. I have had many doctors suspect that I have it, as well, but everytime I have the bloodwork done it is within normal range. My sister said they did not dx her until she had an ultrasound of her thyroid and a biopsy. She said her labwork was always "normal" as well.

Do any of you have this disease and how were you dx'd?

Hugs,
Beth

Hi Beth:

My sister-in-law has Hashimoto's. I know it took a long time for her to be dx. She is a nurse and struggled for a while with it before knowing what it was. I'll have to ask her more about it for you.

Hang in there and I'll let you know what I find out. scratch
