How aware are you of your thyroid gland?

On Saturday, Jan. 25, at 9 a.m. CT, Ian Hay, M.D., Ph. D., will join the program to mark Thyroid Awareness Month.  How do you know if your thyroid gland isn't working?  Who should be screened for hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism?  What is Hashimoto’s disease? Why are cases of thyroid cancer increasing?  Are women at greater risk of thyroid problems and why?  We hope you'll listen.

Myth or Matter of Fact:  Once you begin taking thyroid medication, you’re on it forever.
