The first ThyroWorld electronic newsletter
Thyroid Federation International (TFI) is very glad to announce the first E-news ThyroWorld electronic newsletter. The newsletter is initially meant for patient organizations and patients all over the world with interest in the news about thyroid diseases but who can’t find their way in the load of articles on all different kind of levels. The newsletter can also be read by general physicians with an extra interest in thyroid diseases.
The E-news ThyroWorld provides a number of links to abstracts of scientific articles that may be of interest to a hypothyroid or hyperthyroid patient or for a patient with thyroid cancer or another thyroid disease.The articles are a mixture with no specific theme.
This time we found articles on subjects like side effects of thyroid disease (hart, skeleton), treatment (Graves,subclinical hypo), pregnancy, children and the effect of treatment for hypo patients and cancer patients.
Your help is required
In order to make this newsletter better we ask everybody that reads this to let us know what you think of it. On the website of Thyroid Federation International we will provide a list with explanation of words that might need explanation.
