In Hashimoto’s disease, the thyroid is under attack by the immune system.
As thyroid cells are broken down, they release thyroid hormones into the bloodstream. This causes thyroid hormone surges, or a transient hyperthyroidism. This excess amount of thyroid hormone can make us extremely anxious, irritable, and on edge. This is one symptom that is commonly attributed to Graves’ disease but can also happen in Hashimoto’s.

Hashimoto’s can make you feel like you’re alone and losing yourself. Many
of the symptoms can feel confusing, others downright devastating.

Hashimoto’s symptoms can
be greatly improved by addressing underlying issues in a specific order, starting with stress hormone imbalances.

Dr. Gupta's Functional Medicine Hashimoto's program is designed to walk you through how to identify and address the various
triggers associated with autoimmune thyroid disease.
