World Thyroid Day on May 25, is dedicated to thyroid patients and to all those who are committed to the study and treatment of thyroid diseases worldwide. The latest study conducted by the State Welfare Organization has indicated that hypothyroidism which is a preventable cause of mental retardation, is four times higher in the country than the global average rate, Persian language newspaper ‘Iran’ reported. “Early diagnosis of the disease in the first two years of life can prevent other mental and physical health complications later,” said Ebrahim Mohsenzadeh, endocrinology and metabolism specialist. Infants with congenital hypothyroidism are usually described as “good babies” because they rarely cry and sleep most of the time.
