Early detection of the risk to develop Hashimoto thyroiditis

The following questionnaire carries a serious and kind approach to your health and wellbeing by investigating the major risk factors and symptom areas over time. We hope you will experience the clarity of mind to answer both directly and honestly as best you can.
Get some minutes for yourself. Grab a cup of tea and let's start.

START
To which gender identity do you most identify?
At which stage of life are you right now?
Does someone of your family suffer of autoimmune diseases (e.g. Type 1 diabetes, Hashimoto thyroiditis)?
Have you ever been diagnosed with any of these conditions: Type 1 diabetes, Vitiligo, Addison’s disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis and/or Multiple sclerosis?
Have you experienced delayed puberty? We talk about girls’ delayed puberty when breasts don't develop by age 13 or menstrual periods do not begin by age 16. By boys: increased testis volume without adrenarche.
Are you usually easily overwhelmed by such things as bright lights, noise, crowded places, busy schedule?
Please, mark those symptoms/complaints you are currently experiencing
Below are a set of statements that tap various aspects of early life. Read each statement carefully and choose this/those that are true for you.
Have you experienced any major life event (death of loved one, divorce, moving, major illness, promotion, demotion, new job, new supervisor, job loss etc.) during the last 12 months?

After submitting your email, on the next screen your results from the quiz estimating your risk to develop Hashimoto thyroiditis will be available. Just click on the right corner to see them.

Low risk of developing of Hashimoto thyroiditis

The results may be indicating no risk of developing Hashimoto thyroiditis. Nevertheless, it is not synonymous with not having a risk of Hashimoto thyroiditis. It may be that you are at the earlier phase (phase 1) of the disease where it is best to start intervening in order to secure that the disease will not develop.

Furthermore, it may be that there is another cause for your complaints.

Listen to your body and keep monitoring. You may consider redoing the quiz later. Or you may decide discussing your case with our experts.

 

Medium risk of developing Hashimoto thyroiditis

Health complaints can precede formal diagnosis (Phased 2 or Phase 3). Since autoantibodies are markers of disease activity, autoantibodies are often able to predict disease. Anti-TPO measurement may be proper for patients with high-normal TSH to distinguish those at risk of developing hypothyroidism. This approach is especially promising for diseases with a long subclinical period, which can take as long as 10 years, a feature of many organ-specific autoimmune diseases, as Hashimoto thyroiditis.

A good place to start is having a proper blood test first. If you want to discuss the results from the blood test with our expert, please leave this email: bloodtests@hashimoto.help when ordering your blood tests.  

Higher risk of developing Hashimoto thyroiditis

Very likely you are at the phase 3 of the disease development. Patients with subclinical hypothyroidism (elevated TSH and normal thyroid hormones) have a high rate of progression to clinically overt hypothyroidism. In most of the cases, increased autoantibodies are also present. Since autoantibodies are markers of disease activity, autoantibodies are often able to predict disease. This approach is especially promising for diseases with a long subclinical period, which can take as long as 10 years, a feature of many organ-specific autoimmune diseases, as Hashimoto thyroiditis.  Anti-TPO measurement may be proper for patients with high-normal TSH to distinguish those at risk of developing hypothyroidism.
