Have you begun wondering why you are suddenly losing your hair? When brushing your hair, are you noticing more and more hair piling up in your hair brush than you remember? Are you noticing that you're gaining weight lately, even though you've been careful not to over indulge in carbohydrates and sweets, and you've been working out at the gym? Have you been depressed lately and experiencing migraine headaches? If you do have some of these symptoms, you might need to go to the doctor and get some tests done to find out if you have the disease more commonly known as Hashimoto's disease.
Hashimoto's disease causes both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. Most of the people who have thyroid problems have either one or the other, not both. If you have hypothyroidism, you gain weight and are tired most of the time. Your thyroid is slow. But if you have hyperthyroidism, you have a thyroid that works overtime. It's totally the opposite. With Hashimoto's Disease, it can create hormone imbalances that cause the body to be very confused.
What should you do if you have some of the symptoms above and suspect you have Hashimoto's disease? The very first thing you should do is, go to the doctor. Tell your doctor what your symptoms are and what you suspect could be the problem. From there, tests will likely be done to examine your blood and find if you do have this disease.
If the prognosis is that you do have Hashimoto's disease or at least hypothyroid disease, you can never truly cure an auto-immune disease, but you can be treated to relieve the symptoms and reverse the disease. Usually a doctor will either prescribe thyroid hormone replacement agents such as Levothyroxine or Dessicated Thyroid Extract. For some, the good news is that your symptoms should disappear and you can live a normal life after that.
The thing you have to pay attention to and remember is that if you do have either hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism you need to get yourself tested and take your medication. If you go for an extended time without taking your medication, your muscles could deteriorate or you could have a heart attack. So be diligent if you are one who had this disease.
Otherwise, you'll live a perfectly normal life, and your hair will come back and stop falling out when you take your medication. That is unless you're a male who has the family inheritance of balding, then that's another case for another kind of doctor.
