Hashimoto’s Disease

Disability Claims for Hashimoto’s Disease

Put Our Disability Insurance Attorneys On Your Side

Hashimoto’s disease is the most common cause of thyroid disorder (hypothyroidism) in the United States. Unlike other thyroid disorders, which can be treated with hormonal medications, Hashimoto’s disease is an autoimmune disorder and may be more difficult to control. When Hashimoto’s disorder causes hypothyroidism, your entire body can slow down. This may make it difficult or even impossible for you to maintain gainful employment.

Fortunately, if you have disability insurance through your workplace or a private policy, you may be entitled to disability benefits. Short-term disability (STD) benefits can compensate you while you take time off to get your medical condition under control, and long-term disability (LTD) benefits can replace your income if Hashimoto’s disease renders you permanently unable to work.

When you file a claim for disability benefits, keep in mind that doctor’s notes might not be enough. If you want assistance creating your claim or need help with a disability denial, you should contact an experienced disability attorney immediately.

Dabdoub Law Firm has been helping clients with disability claims for more than 20 years. We help people across the United States and in all sorts of occupations.

We are ready to help you, too. All you need to do is call us at (800) 969-0488 today.

Consequences of Hashimoto’s Disease

In the early days of Hashimoto’s disease, the condition can be subclinical, meaning it is mild and without symptoms. As the disease, progresses, however, many unpleasant symptoms can arise. Further, Hashimoto’s disease is frequently linked to other, more severe conditions, such as:

  • Addison’s disease
  • Autoimmune hepatitis
  • Celiac disease
  • Lupus
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Pernicious anemia (B12 deficiency)
  • Sjögren’s syndrome (dry eyes and mouth)
  • Vitiligo (lack of skin pigment)

In addition to comorbid conditions, Hashimoto’s disease is associated with symptoms of its own. Symptoms of Hashimoto’s disease include:

  • Hypothyroidism, which can lead to high cholesterol and heart disease
  • Enlarged thyroid (goiter)
  • Fatigue (extreme tiredness)
  • A slowed heart rate
  • Weight gain
  • Trouble tolerating cold
  • Joint and muscle pain
  • Constipation
  • Heavy or irregular menstrual periods
  • Problems with fertility
  • Dry, thinning hair
  • Memory problems
  • Depression

Any of these symptoms or comorbid conditions can make it difficult to hold a job in any line of work. As a result, you may need to pursue STD benefits, LTD benefits, or both.
