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!
General Thyroid Related Articles (Hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s, Hyperthyroidism, Graves’ Disease, Thyroid Cancer)
The big news this week is about the new Guidelines from the ATA (American Thyroid Association), which unfortunately doesn’t shed much light on T3 treatment (either in addition to Levothyroxine or as part of a natural thyroid hormone replacement) because of lack of evidence. As a parent and a patient, I’m hoping that they will continue to research this because it is frustrating that there still isn’t enough “evidence”.
