For Medical Professionals

A study explores the health-related quality of life and feelings of self-worth among children with congenital hypothyroidism.
An article in Clinical Endocrinology examines the effectiveness of radioactive iodine ablation in halting the recurrence of papillary thyroid microcarcinoma.
Is hyperthyroidism associated with increased mortality? If so, is it the condition itself, genetic factors, or comorbidity that influences this increase?
What roles do genetic factors (such as height) and levels of physical activity at various life stages play in the risk of thyroid cancer for postmenopausal women?
In evaluating thyroid nodules, fine needle aspiration biopsy is the critical initial diagnostic test. If the results are indeterminate, thyroid surgery is often undertaken.
If a woman is iodine deficient during pregnancy, it may have an adverse effect on her baby.
In an effort to reduce the number of thyroidectomies done to diagnose malignancy of a follicular neoplasm of the thyroid gland, researchers looked at independent predictive factors.
Researchers looked at the connection between the broad spectrum of hypothyroidism and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
Researchers investigated the link between subclinical hypothyroidism and cognitive impairment in the elderly. Discover what they found in this thyroid-focused study.
It’s well known that celiac disease is common in patients who have hypothyroidism. Researchers investigated whether the presence and treatment of celiac disease impact levothyroxine dosing.
Researchers examined the association between thyroid cancer and hyperthyroidism. Find out what researchers learned about this relationship in this thyroid-focused study.
What is the frequency of hypothyroidism in patients with RA? Is there a link between hypothyroidism and the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD) in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA)?
Anemia is sometimes the first sign of hypothyroidism. In a thyroid study, researchers looked at the characteristics of anemia in patients with subclinical hypothyroidism and overt hypothyroidism.
Exophthalmos can occur in Graves’ disease, and it is possible to use decompression techniques to reduce it.
Find out what researchers discovered about subclinical hypothyroidism in babies born via IVF.
Fine-needle aspiration biopsy (FNAB) is used to determine if a thyroid nodule is cancerous, but inadequate samples are reported in 1% to 20% of the thyroid biopsies done. Learn more in this article.
A study out of China looked at the effectiveness of radioactive iodine therapy (131-I) in patients with Graves’ disease. Article provides basics of this thyroid research.
A study from Japan examined the effect of iodine intake on maternal and neonatal thyroid function in an iodine-sufficient area.
Many patients who have had a thyroidectomy complain of weight gain despite their efforts to lose weight. Researchers looked at the connection between weight gain and thyroidectomy.
Researchers from the Netherlands looked at the impact subclinical thyroid disorders have on depression, physical and cognitive impairment, and mortality in older adults.
