What Is Hashimoto’s Disease?

Hashimoto’s Disease Up Close

Hashimoto’s disease is an autoimmune disorder where a person’s immune system attacks their thyroid. It causes hypothyroidism, which means the thyroid is underactive.

While many people who suffer from this illness may feel alone, they’re truly in good company. Celebrities including Oprah Winfrey, Kim Cattrall, Zoe Saldana, Mary-Louise Parker, Molly Sims, and Gigi Hadid also have Hashimoto’s.
