Treatment autoimmune thyroiditis (hashimoto's disease) in Karlovy Vary
Autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT, Hashimoto thyroiditis) is a chronic inflammation of the thyroid tissue that occurs with damage and destruction of the follicles of the gland. AIT in most cases is asymptomatic, sometimes manifested by an enlarged thyroid gland, weakness, joint pain, and a lump in the throat. Postpartum thyroiditis is accompanied by moderate thyrotoxicosis, fatigue, lethargy, weight loss, in rare cases, tachycardia, fever, sweating, sleep disturbance and tremor. Without treatment, the latent form can flow into hypertrophic, and then into atrophic. In the first case, signs of hypothyroidism or thyrotoxicosis appear, nodes are formed. Atrophic form manifests itself in persistent hypothyroidism, gland function is greatly reduced. Symptomatic drug treatment is used (thyrostatics, thyroid drugs, glucocorticoids). Spa-resort treatment with autoimmune thyroiditis is carried out in the absence of an active process and with an euthyroid state in spa hotels of this climatic zone. Climate therapy, aerotherapy, speleotherapy, heliotherapy, thalassotherapy and balneotherapy, and in some cases mud therapy are used. Spa treatment can be used for hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism and thyrotoxicosis without complications.
