After a short hiatus, Dr. Dimitre is back to talk about subclinical hypothyroidism. Sometimes referred to as mild thyroid failure, it is diagnosed when peripheral thyroid hormone (T3 and T4) levels are within the normal range, but thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) is mildly elevated.
It is common, occurring in 10% of the population, and carries a risk of progression to overt hypothyroidism of around 5% per year. There is no consensus on which patients should be treated, although there are some recommendations.
