January is thyroid awareness month! Even though it is quickly coming to a close, it's not too late to share with you information I found as part of an awareness campaign by the American College of Endocrinology on the importance of endocrine health. It's called The Power of Prevention.
In their magazine (Download POP_magazine_Jan2009_final), you can read about thyroid cancer, hyperthyroidism (including Grave's Disease), hypothyroidism, thyroid nodules, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis, various treatment options (such as radioiodine therapy RAI) and much more. It's a 32 page resource chock full of information. I was excited to find it and wanted to share it with you here.
