hi..hashimotos disease leads to hypothyroidism, which in turn will cause excessive menstrual flow. you may have to get thyroid profile done to check your hormone status. But at the same time, excessive menstrual bleeding can sign of menopause since you are 49. consult a gynecologist for further management. start taking iron tablets to maintain normal haemoglobin level. good luck.
