An increasing body of evidence suggests there may be ‘fetal origins’ of cardiovascular disease, and adverse conditions during pregnancy, including hypothyroidism, may play a role.

The analgesic effect of intravenous dexmedetomidine was equivalent to that of a bilateral superficial cervical plexus block for post-thyroidectomy pain.
Hypothyroidism is common in patients with obesity, but there are no clear data regarding whether patients who are taking levothyroxine should have their dosing regimen adjusted following weight loss after undergoing bariatric surgery.
Investigators studied the bones of adults who had thyroid cancer as children to find out if treatment for the disease carried consequences into adulthood.
Researchers examined the relationship of radiaoactive iodine treatment on antithyroid antibody levels and a potential link between these levels and radioiodine uptake in people with Graves disease.
Pooled cancer risk after exposure to radioactive iodine (RAI) therapy for hyperthyroidism is not significantly elevated.
Obesity rates and the incidence of malignant thyroid nodules have been increasing among younger patients in the US; there may be an association.
A single preoperative dose of dexamethasone reduces rates of postoperative hypocalcemia and voice dysfunction in patients undergoing thyroidectomy.
While calcitonin is considered standard of care for the diagnosis and follow-up of medullary thyroid cancer, researchers may have found a potentially more reliable marker.
Anxiety and depression in people with hyperparathyroidism may be related to levels of 2 key hormones in the body, according to researchers.
Investigators assessed the relationship between intraoperative measurements obtained via laser speckle contrast imaging and outcomes following total thyroidectomy.
