As the majority of people on here are female, I thought I would post something specifically for the men amongst us so they don't feel too left out
A new study has been published describing a genetic mutation which causes hypothyroidism and favours men instead of women.
Particularly of note...
"there may be many individuals (boys and men, in particular) in the general population with presently undetected, but clinically significant hypothyroidism. "
But when any patients will actually be tested for this mutation remains to be established. We also don't know how common this mutation is. But progress is progress, right?!
