Example text

But appropriately controlled trials not only failed to confirm the cardiovascular benefit but demonstrated that this therapy could actually harm the patient. Additional studies are changing our ideas about postmenopausal hormone replacement therapy still further. Subclinical hypothyroidism (elevated TSH with a normal free T4) occurs in up to 20% of the elderly population. It is easily corrected with levothyroxine therapy leading to TSH normalization. 11 Furthermore, a significant minority of patients with subclinical hypothyroidism who are treated with levothyroxine develop subclinical hyperthyroidism, with its potential but unquantified consequences.

Although patients are often told that antithyroid drugs can be used for only a limited period, that notion is incorrect, provided that the patient has no long-term toxicity. Radioactive iodine therapy for a so-called hot nodule (an autonomously producing adenoma) approaches ideal therapy. A single dose of sodium iodide I 131 usually cures the hyperthyroidism. Most patients become euthyroid, and some become hypothyroid. The nodule may persist. It should be noted that some questions have been raised about the potential long-term effects of radiation from radioactive iodine on the remaining normal thyroid gland.

TSH measurements can be misleading even with an intact hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis in a healthy individual. I recently saw an elderly woman who had become progressively more hyperthyroid because her elevated TSH could not be brought down to normal with supraphysiologic doses of thyroid hormone prescribed by her personal physician. After a brain MRI to exclude a TSHsecreting pituitary tumor, she was sent for consultation to exclude thyroid hormone resistance despite being clinically hyperthyroid.
