Family History of thyroid disease

Rate this Entry
  
For some reason, I was quizzing my mother about family history of thyroid diseases, and in fact there isn't one there.
But I didn't think to ask my paternal uncle. He says that in fact, my paternal grandmother was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism when she was 76, and her sister was too, at that same age, and that while he doesn't know what kind, he does know that they both had radioactive iodine treatments and that my grandmother was on thryoid replacement hormones later on.

So there's the history.
