This book is a practical, evidence-based resource covering thyroid disease and its effects on reproduction and fertility, discussing thyroid function and dysfunction - hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, thyroid nodules and cancer - during pregnancy as well as its effects on the fetus. It begins with a review of the anatomy and function of the thyroid and the biosynthesis and physiology of thyroid hormones, as well as the pathophysiology of thyroid dysfunction. The chapters that follow discuss thyroid function and dysfunction (e.g., hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism) during pregnancy and its effects on fertility as well as the developing fetus. The management of thyroid nodules and cancer, the role of thyroid dysfunction in infertility, the role of thyroid autoimmunity and miscarriage, and postpartum thyroiditis are presented in detail in the concluding chapters. Clinical cases and outcomes bookend each chapter, demonstrating current management strategies for a well-rounded presentation. Filling a clear gap in the literature usually covered only briefly in larger texts on the thyroid, Thyroid Disease and Reproduction: A Clinical Guide to Diagnosis and Management is a unique resource for reproductive endocrinologists, obstetrician/gynecologists, and residents and students in these clinical areas.

When the Medicare program was established in 1965, it was viewed as a form of financial protection for the elderly against catastrophic medical expenses, primarily those related to hospitalization for unexpected illnesses. The first expansions to the program increased the eligible population from the retired to the disabled and to persons receiving chronic renal dialysis. It was not until 1980 that an expansion of services beyond those required "for the diagnosis or treatment of illness or injury or to improve the functioning of a malformed body member" was included in Medicare. These services, known as preventive services, are intended either to prevent disease (by vaccination) or to detect disease (by diagnostic test) before the symptoms of illness appear. A Committee was formed "to conduct a study on the addition of coverage of routine thyroid screening using a thyroid stimulating hormone test as a preventive benefit provided to Medicare beneficiaries under Title XVIII of the Social Security Act for some or all Medicare beneficiaries."

The thyroid disorders are one of the most common and exciting areas of endocrinology. Hypothyroidism, multinodular goiter, hyperthyroidism and thyroid cancer are only few of the several implications that the thyroid disorders have in health. In fact, thyroid hormones regulate not only metabolism process, but also many other molecular and physiological systems. From this point of view, hyperthyroidism complications are a good example of the significance of thyroid hormone actions. This book aims to provide a general view of thyroid disorders, and a deeper explanation of hyperthyroidism and its complications and impact in health.
