Thyroid Disease

Autoimmune thyroid diseases (AITDs) are one of the most prevalent autoimmune diseases.1

Undiagnosed AITDs can put patients at risk for certain serious conditions, such as cardiovascular diseases, osteoporosis, and infertility. Despite the consequences of AITDs, and the relatively high prevalence, approximately 5 percent of the population(up to 60 percent of people with AITDs) are unaware of their condition.3 The use of laboratory diagnostics can support you in differentiating between the ambiguous symptoms of AITDs.4
