It's really important to order the right Hashimoto's Labs. There are a number of lab tests other than just thyroid labs that should be ordered.
And here's why, Hashimoto's is way more than a thyroid problem. Autoimmunity and hypothyroidism can affect many different systems of the body including the brain.
