Parkes, Ph.D., Mohammed Joomun, M.Sc., and Nicholas J. Wald, F.R.S.: Antenatal Thyroid Screening and Childhood Cognitive Function Active secretion of thyroid hormone in the fetus will not start until about 18 to 20 weeks’ gestation.1 Studies in pets claim that until fetal hormone secretion begins, the fetus is dependent on circulating free thyroxine in the mother for development and development, including central nervous system maturation. 1 Iodine is vital for free T4 synthesis, and in iodine-deficient populations, a rise in cognitive functionality has been noticed after iodine supplementation before being pregnant.2-4 High levels of thyrotropin in women during pregnancy have been associated with impaired cognitive development within their offspring.Granton, MD Associate Professor of Medicine University of Toronto Related StoriesLenvatinib trial gives hope for thyroid tumor patientsBRCA gene mutations and ovarian cancer tumor: an interview with Dr Matulonis, Harvard Medical SchoolUsing breath exams to diagnose liver diseases: an interview with Larry CohenSalah Najm, MD Pulmonary, Sleep, and Critical Care Fellow University Hospitals, Case INFIRMARY Cleveland, Ohio Project: Vascular Reactivity in Response to Acute Hypoxia: Defining Features and Mechanisms Mentor: Kingman Strohl, MD Professor of Medication, Physiology, Biophysics, and Oncology Case Western Reserve University Yon K.
