Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis – It’s a Genetics Thing

Hashimoto's Thyroiditis - It's a Genetics Thing by Holtorf Medical GroupWhen Hypothyroid Mom launched on October 1st, 2012, I hoped my blog would reach a few readers outside of my family and friends, but never did I imagine the number of people that it would reach in such a short time. I was blown away when thyroid expert Dr. Kent Holtorf, medical director of the non-profit National Academy of Hypothyroidism and medical director of the Holtorf Medical Group, included @HypothyroidMom in his recommended list of people to follow on Twitter on a Friday in early November (#FF FollowFriday).

“Dr. Holtorf has been a great supporter of Hypothyroid Mom since I launched in October 2012.

Dr. Holtorf ROCKS! You let him know that.” [Read more…]
