Atrophy of Thyroid
I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's 20 years ago and treated with T3 and T4. Recently endocrinoligist said my thyroid had shrivelled. What does this mean to my health? Will my condition deteriorate? I have read that this is the end result of Hashimotos but do not understand what this means for me. Thank you for your help.

Yes it is the end result of Hashi's. Actually I await this kind of news for myself, because it means no more hashi swings and attacks! The antibodies will now calm down because the thyroid tissue is dead. Lower antibody count means remission....which in turn means normalization.....which means YEAH!!!!! You have won the hashi battle!!
Yes you will be on full replacement meds for the rest of your life, BUT you can now be on an even keel, and HEAL!  
GOOD NEWS!!
:) :)
