About the book
Hypothyroidism is the most common endocrine disorder. It is treated with the natural hormone produced by the thyroid gland, which is synthetically produced. The disease itself may be the result of many disorders, however Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is the most common. Nowadays, an epidemic of autoimmune diseases may have had an impact on the incidence of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. In addition, there is renewed interest in the etiology of Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, as efforts are continuing to solve the mystery of the etiology of autoimmunity. Moreover, new development, such as the advent of use of immune checkpoint inhibitors in the treatment of cancer has had an impact on the treatment of hypothyroidism in these patients. Therefore, there is a renewed interest in the new developments in hypothyroidism and an effort will be made to focus on them within this book.
