Listen: Demystifying the Thyroid Gland

January is Thyroid Awareness Month. You may be aware of the thyroid gland, but are you aware of the huge importance this gland plays in regulating many functions of your body? In this Tangi 96.5 FM "North Oaks Health Notes" segment, Dr. A. Mannan Khan of North Oaks Endocrinology Clinic joins host Johnny Chauvin to explain.

Dr. Khan is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine in internal medicine. A graduate of Tulane School of Medicine in New Orleans, Khan carried out a residency in internal medicine and fellowship training in endocrinology through Ochsner Medical Center in New Orleans.

He specializes in diagnosing and treating medical conditions affecting the endocrine system, which is a collection of glands that chemically control organ function through the secretion of hormones via the circulatory system.
