Does your child have a Thyroid Condition
Tue, 06-22-2004 - 10:20pm

More than 10 million people have been diagnosed with thyroid disease in the U.S. alone.


The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland found in the neck which controls the body's rate of metabolism. When this gland is not working properly, it can affect almost every aspect of health.


Has your baby and toddler been diagnosed with a thyroid disease? This can present its own fears and concerns, and we hope that you will find support, encouragement and friendship at the Children's Thyroid Condition board.
