I am approaching the age where I am wanting to start a family. I myself was diagnosed with hashimotos 5 years ago.
Around about the same time, my family started getting tested, as many of my aunties and cousins had similar symptoms to me.
It now turns out that my grandmother, mother, all 5 aunties and all their daughters have now been diagnosed with hashimotos. Needless to say- it runs strong in our family.
I am scared to continue passing this on into the next generation. I know it's probably impossible, but has anyone heard of ways to reduce the likelihood??
It's been horrible to see so many of my family suffer through this.
