Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningpeer review

Resumé

Hyperthyroidism is associated with severe comorbidity, such as stroke, and seems to confer increased mortality. However, it is unknown whether this increased mortality is explained by hyperthyroidism per se, comorbidity, and/or genetic confounding.
