Studies include a potential test for MS, a link between headaches and hypothyroidism, and a risk prediction scale for stroke patients.
Highlights of three new studies in neurology include: a new test shows promise in diagnosing multiple sclerosis (MS) quickly by identifying gene patterns in the blood, headache disorders may be a risk factor for the development of new onset hypothyroidism, and a new risk prediction scale can help in the management and decision making for patients at risk for potentially lethal malignant edema after a stroke.

Headache disorders may be associated with an increased risk for the development of new onset hypothyroidism.
