Clinical Thyroidology for Patients
Up-to-date information to help you understand thyroid disease through the latest research.
In this issue, the studies ask the following questions:
- Does having celiac disease affect your dose of levothyroxine?
- If you are pregnant, does your thyroid function affect your baby?
- Does subclinical thyroid disease cause heart problems in older people?
- How safe is steroid treatment in thyroid eye disease?
- Do you have to stop amiodarone if you have amiodarone-induced hyperthyroidism?
- Can repeat surgery be avoiding in thyroid cancer patients who initially had a lobectomy?
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.
