Autoimmune disease is disorders that are caused by an over-active immune system. There are numerous types, one of which is autoimmune thyroiditis.
If your thyroid has inflammation, you have thyroiditis. Most of the time it happens because your body makes antibodies that assault your thyroid. This condition is called autoimmune thyroiditis, chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, or Hashimoto’s disease.
