Management of Hypothyroidism


Hypothyroidism is common and is generally managed in primary care. Trial data is often not available to support what is regarded as established clinical practice. Increasing numbers of patients with symptoms which might be attributable to hypothyroidism are tested requiring more frequent interpretation of abnormal thyroid function tests. Investigation and treatment of hypothyroidism are discussed including management of those who are pregnant or have transient or subclinical hypothyroidism.
