Did anyone see this news story?


Researchers in Italy think there could be a link between adhd and thyroid problems/iodine deficiency during pregnancy. Caught my eye because I've had my thyroid function tested a couple of times, but it's always been borderline so been treated. Anyone else?

OMG we don't have a diagnosis for ds2 but adhd has been mentioned among with lots of other things.
I have an underactive thyriod which was diagnosed a few months before I became pregnant.It has taken 3 years to get the dose right.I take 125 mg a day which is quite a high dose.In early pregnancy I was only taking 25mg.
