Hashimoto’s Disease is an autoimmune disorder which causes the bodies antibodies to attack healthy thyroid tissue. One of Hashimoto’s characteristic symptoms is rough, cracked or scaly skin which occurs due to a reduction in blood supply to the skin. In advanced cases this reduction can be as much as 75-80%, leading to the skin being unable to replenish its supply of healthy cells due to the inadequate level of blood flow. However, there are some changes you can make in your life that can minimise the effect of Hashimoto’s Disease on your skin.
