Up-to-date information to help you understand thyroid disease through the latest research.

In this issue, the studies ask the following questions:

  • How effective are antithyroid drugs in treating Graves' Disease in children?
  • Do thyroid disorders cause postpartum psychosis?
  • Does subclinical hypothyroidism in the mother affect the baby's IQ scores?
  • Can medical treatment shrink thyroid nodules?
  • Do suppressive levothyroxine doses in thyroid cancer patients cause heart disease?

We welcome your feedback and suggestions. Let us know what you want to see in this publication. I hope you find these summaries interesting and informative.
