Abstract

Ob/gyns are increasingly being called upon to manage subclinical thyroid disease. In this concluding article of a two-part series, two experts clarify the controversy over when to treat mild hyperthyroidism. Do treat a mildly overactive thyroid in elderly patients, they say, because low bone density and cardiac abnormalities can do substantial harm.
