What is Postpartum Thyroiditis?

KDAH

Postpartum thyroiditis, or inflammation of the thyroid after giving birth, affects 10% of women. It often goes undiagnosed because symptoms are much like the "baby blues" that may follow delivery. Women with postpartum thyroiditis may feel very tired and moody. Postpartum thyroiditis typically happens in two phases, though not everyone with the condition goes through both phases. #ThyroidAwarenessMonth
