Today, she shares her incredible story and we dive deep into the topic of thyroid disease and Hashimoto’s. Carrie shares some of the symptoms of Hashimoto’s, why it’s important to listen to your body and warning signs, what to ask for when getting lab work, how often to get your thyroid checked, and the impact of diet and lifestyle choices on Hashimoto’s.
