One rheumy dx'd me with hashi's because my anti-thyroid antibodies were so high. But the level went way down and the new rheumy says "No Hashi dx"
But I've read quite extensively and as some said above . . . it is very common and most people who have it don't even realize it. Most are just treated for hypothyroid and take synthroid or another thyroid hormone.
I'm glad they are treating your sister . . . hope she feels better soon.
