"Hashimoto’s disease is an autoimmune disorder that can cause hypothyroidism, or underactive thyroid. With this disease, your immune system attacks your thyroid. The thyroid becomes damaged and can’t make enough thyroid hormones."
"There are 3-5 cases of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis per 10,000 people every year. The number of diagnosed Hashimoto’s thyroiditis cases is increasing over time, mainly due to better diagnostic techniques and active searching among family members of known patients.
The female-to-male ratio is 20:1. The disease is most common in middle aged women, but it can affect all age groups, including children."
