Scout, Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an auto immune thyroid disorder which causes hypothyroidism. I take Synthroid and Cytomel daily for this. To diagnose it, the doctor does a test for TPO and TG antibodies. Both of mine were positive. The body just destroys the thyroid slowly so thyroid levels have to be taken and adjusted frequently. I am new to this. I have been on meds for it for about 10 months now. I won't even bother with the symptoms as it would be very easy for you to check it out if you are at all interested. This GP I go to now is the one who listened to me with regard to the thyroid. I do not want to leave her. I would rather stay with one doctor and try to work things out. Thanks for asking. Hoppy;)
