Many of the women in my family, myself and my mom included, have Hashimoto's. A year ago, my mother passed away 10 days post-op from a craniotomy to repair a small brain aneurysm. 3 months prior, she had had surgery to remove a recurring benign parotid tumor, at the same time finding the aneurysm. The autopsy report cited dilated cardiomyopathy as the COD. She was 51 and a smoker, but had seriously reduced her tobacco habit after the parotid surgery. Never before had cardiomyopathy been diagnosed or mentioned.
Reading a little online, some studies have suggested a correlation between cardiomyopathy and Hashimoto's. Does anyone have further details on this or any insight?
