Hi anon,

I'm glad you found EmpowHER...let's see if we can help find you some information.

There have been numerous questions and medical expert discussions regarding thyroid conditions generally, and hashimoto's in particular. These discussions are so packed with information, that I am unable to summarize them for you; I hope you find some of them useful:
- EmpowHER discussion: Hashimotos
- EmpowHER discussion: Help regarding Hashimotos
- EmpowHER Medical Expert, Dr. Friedman: Diagnosis and Treatment of Hypothyroidism
- EmpowHER Medical Expert: Dr. Friedman discusses importance of hormones and thyroid conditions (scroll through list of audio/video posts, as there are many related to your condition)

Please let us know if this information is useful, as I prefer to provide more summarized information (in lieu of links-only), but I feel that you would benefit most from reviewing the information in the context of the discussion threads.

Do you have any additional questions, after reviewing some of the information?
