About statistics:

This page presents a variety of statistics about Autoimmune thyroid diseases. The term 'prevalence' of Autoimmune thyroid diseases usually refers to the estimated population of people who are managing Autoimmune thyroid diseases at any given time. The term 'incidence' of Autoimmune thyroid diseases refers to the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Autoimmune thyroid diseases diagnosed each year. Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short-lived disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.
