Thyroid disorders can overreact to the slightest of imbalances — join us and gain the advice you need to live a happy, healthy life with Hashimotos! You’re not alone in your thyroid struggles. Challenged by symptoms, frustrated with testing or even if you’ve already been diagnosed- this summit is for you.
The Healing Hashimoto’s Online Summit 2017 will:
- Raise awareness about this chronic disease
- Help with early detection, testing and diagnosis

Who is likely to develop Hashimoto’s disease?
Hashimoto’s disease is at least 8 times more common in women than men. Although the disease may occur in teens or young women, it more often appears between ages 40 and 60. Your chance of developing Hashimoto’s disease increases if other family members have the disease.
You are more likely to develop Hashimoto’s disease if you have other autoimmune disorders. Conditions linked to Hashimoto’s disease include Addisons, Autoimmune hepatitis, Celiac, Lupus, Pernicious anemia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Sjogrens, Diabetes, Vitiligo and if you already have a thyroid condition.
The hypothyroidism of Hashimoto’ disease often is subclinical—mild and without symptoms—especially early in the disease. As hypothyroidism progresses, you may have one or more of the following symptoms:
- weight gain
- cold or heat intolerance
- joint and muscle pain
- dry, thinning hair
- heavy or irregular menstrual periods and problems becoming pregnant
- depression or anxiety
- memory problems/brain fog
- a slowed heart rate
- thyroid nodules
- difficulty recovering from activity or exercise
