Comment prescrire les hormones thyroïdiennes [How to prescribe thyroid hormones]
Revue Médicale Suisse
Thyroid substitution is generally considered easy as well by general practitioners as by specialists, considering that a single hormone levothyroxin is recommended and that laboratory tests are readily available for measurement of free T4 and TSH. However cross sectional studies have shown that about 45% of patients are over-treated and under-treated. This paper summarizes the critical information useful to facilitate a better management of hypothyroid patients by promoting long lasting euthyroidism.
