Hi there...i hope u ll be fine...ah..Hashimotos...but are you married?? i would suggest two things as precautions..1st do take care of your Periods if they come so..and the second one is Hypothyroidism
caused by Hashimoto's Thyroiditis is treated with thyroid hormone replacement
agents such as levothyroxine
or desiccated thyroid extract
. A tablet taken once a day generally keeps the thyroid hormone levels normal. In most cases, the treatment needs to be taken for the rest of the patient's life. In the event that hypothyroidism is caused by Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, it is recommended that the TSH levels be kept under 3.0. As long as the patient's thyroid is active, the body will continue to attack it, and this can wreak havoc on the patient's TSH levels and symptoms.
Preliminary studies have suggested a correlation between Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and Celiac sprue
. While it has not been rigorously explored, there is anecdotal evidence that a gluten-free diet
may reduce the autoimmune response responsible for thyroid degeneration. A study published in January 2012 compared a group of confirmed celiac patients to a control group of healthy individuals, starting a gluten-free diet and continuing for one year. While there was a higher occurrence of thyroiditis found amongst the Celiac group, there was no reduction in their level of anti-TPO antibody, improvement in thyroid function, or change in thyroid volume reduction after one year without gluten. The study mentions that its results disagree with other studies.
