Hashimoto’s disease is an immune phenomenon and occurs when the body is attacking the thyroid cells, says Dr. George Tershakovec, General Surgeon with Homestead Hospital, while explaining, with a digital imaging, what this condition is.

The specialist describes Hashimoto’s disease begins with a body’s reaction against the thyroid creating antibodies against it.

Patients who have lupus, diabetes or any other autoimmune disease are at risk of having the Hashimoto’s condition. It tends to be more common in women in their 40s or 50s.
