Half of thyroid disease sufferers are undiagnosed

More than half of the thyroid disease sufferers are undiagnosed with women being more prone than men. Untreated thyroid disease can increase the risk of heart disease, infertility and osteoporosis. The increased prevalence in women may be due to genetic links between thyroid disorders and other autoimmune diseases. Hypothyroidism will occur during pregnancy in 10% of women and some will recover after the birth whereas others will continue to have the condition indefinitely.
