Resource Roundup: Thyroid Health
Date: January 16, 2024
January is Thyroid Health Awareness Month! We've combed our resources and compiled a list of our Practice Documents, Patient Fact Sheets, and podcasts on thyroid health.
Practice Documents for Thyroid Health
“When the physical examination is normal (the majority of cases), the initial investigations should exclude pregnancy and estimate FSH and prolactin concentrations. Estimation of TSH is useful to rule out subclinical hypothyroidism, even in the absence of thyroid-related symptoms.”
Below, we have linked two practice documents currently available and a takeaway teaser from each.
“Serum thyroid-stimulating hormone can identify thyroid disorders, which may require further investigation and impair fertility when untreated.”
Stay tuned for the upcoming document, Subclinical Hypothyroidism in the Infertile Female Population: A Guideline, coming soon.
