Kidney Disease and Thyroid Disease-health news update

I received a very interesting email update from Mayo Clinic. Medical research is now showing a clear link between kidney disease and thyroid disease.

Thyroid disease has been commonly associated with critical illness, but as far as I know there has been no clear link between kidney disease and thyroid disease.

The take away from this study is in addition to other checkups, kidney patients need an assessment of their thyroid status.
