Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis

For my Capstone Disease Project, I have chosen to focus on the autoimmune disease Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis is a type of hypothyroidism that affects approximately 5% of the population making it one of the more prevalent but less well-known autoimmune disease affecting the population. It is because of this lack of knowledge about Hashimoto’s that I have chosen to research and present in these theme pages for my project. I hope you will find these pages informative.
