Hashimoto's thyroiditis is a condition when your immune system cells attack your healthy thyroid gland cells, which then leads to you losing the ability to produce enough thyroid hormone. The thyroid hormone is the main regulator of your body's metabolism.

It replenishes the thyroid hormone that you have lost with the loss of the thyroid gland cells.
