Hashimoto's in a condition relating to the auto-imune system, your Immune system (T Cells) does not recognize your thyroid and attacks it, causing it to be inflamed(Enlarged) and unproductive, in turn this causes a reduction in hormones secreted in your system.
In the case of an underactive thyroid, your thyroid is just not secreting the amount of hormones in you system. It is just underactive, and not caused by your body's immune system. Good Luck FTB4
