Today's New England Journal of Medicine features a prospective treatment study that addresses the value of screening pregnant women for low thyroid function, which has been linked to miscarriage, pre-term delivery and reduced IQ in children. UCLA has an expert.
 
Dr. Gregory A. Brent, professor-in-residence of medicine and physiology at the David Geffen School of Medicine is past president of the American Thyroid Association and a nationally recognized expert in thyroid disease in pregnancy. He wrote the editorial in New England Journal of Medicine that accompanies the new study.
