    The Link between Graves’ Disease and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis: A Role for Regulatory T Cells

    GRAVES’ DISEASE, ONE of the most common autoimmune diseases affecting humans, is caused by autoantibodies that induce thyrotoxicosis by mimicking the action of TSH and activating the TSH receptor (TSHR). Although such thyroid-stimulating autoantibodies are pathognomonic of Graves’ disease, autoantibodies to thyroid peroxidase (TPO) and thyroglobulin (Tg) are also present. The latter two autoantibodies are the classical markers of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, a condition in which thyroid lymphocytic infiltration and thyrocyte damage may progress to hypothyroidism. Moreover, many Graves’ patients have mild lymphocytic thyroiditis. In some instances, thyroiditis in Graves’ disease becomes sufficiently extensive as to cure the hyperthyroidism with resultant hypothyroidism.The relationship between Graves’ disease and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis has been…

    What Causes Hypothyroidism? The most common cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. “Thyroiditis” is an inflammation of the thyroid gland.

Other causes of hypothyroidism include: Radiation therapy to the neck area: Treating certain cancers, such as lymphoma, requires radiation to the neck. Radiation damages the cells in the thyroid. This makes it more difficult for the gland to produce hormone. Radioactive iodine treatment: This treatment is commonly prescribed to people who have an overactive thyroid gland, a condition known as hyperthyroidism. However, radiation destroys…
