Here’s your Wednesday Weekly Roundup of Thyroid News from Thyroid Mom for October 1, 2014. These are articles, abstracts or blog posts that either appeared in the news this week or things that I found this week that I wanted to share with you relating to hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism in both adults and children. Happy Reading!
