I was looking for some information on thyroid disease the
other day and found, through a tip on the radio, that the
American Academy of Clinical Endocrinology had new statistics
on how much undiagnosed thyroid disease was out there. The
website was simply enough: Their site
featured January as Thyroid disease month and had some of
the information I was looking for. Do I trust that? You bet.
