Some people say they have hypothyroidism. Others will say "I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis" or "Hashimoto's disease." Some thyroid patients think that hypothyroidism and Hashimoto's mean the same thing. Is that really true? Do they really mean the same thing, or are they actually very different? Find out about Hashimoto's disease, the signs and symptoms, thyroiditis, how it's all diagnosed and treated (if and when your doctor will even treat it!) And learn more about when you have Hashimoto's, when you have hypothyroidism -- and when it might be both.
