In a new study reported by Health Day News, a certain Thyroid condition can elevate the risk for heart problems.

"New evidence suggests that a type of overactive thyroid condition appears to boost the risk of heart problems, especially atrial fibrillation (a form of irregular heartbeat) and premature death." MORE

Are you at risk?

This was one of the concerns of my doctors since I was hyperthyroid for so long.
