Despite evidence that thyroid function within the reference range is related with several cardiovascular disorders, its association with the risk of stroke has not been evaluated previously.DESIGN AND SETTING: We identified studies through systematic literature search and the Thyroid Studies Collaboration, a collaboration of prospective cohort studies.
