Old Westbury, N.Y. (November 21, 2013) -- New York Institute of Technology researchers continue to find evidence that thyroid hormones may help prevent cardiac problems. A recent study published in Circulation: Arrhythmia and Electrophysiology by College of Osteopathic Medicine Assistant Professor Youhua Zhang, MD, Ph.D., concluded that normal thyroid hormone levels are required to maintain normal cardiac functioning and prevent arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation -- conditions that result in irregular heartbeat, a “fluttering” of the heart muscle, and sudden death.
