Event Details

Hyperthyroidism and Hypothyroidism are common disorders in the general population, but many providers do not have a clear understanding of the best diagnostic tests and most appropriate treatment approaches and goals. Hyperthyroidism causes include Graves’ disease, toxic multinodular goiter and toxic thyroid adenomas, various forms of thyroiditis, iodine excess, medication effects, and exogenous thyroid hormone use. Thyrotoxicosis can vary in severity from thyroid storm, a life-threatening form of extreme decompensated thyrotoxicosis, to a mild, asymptomatic form that shows up only as a laboratory abnormality. Hypothyroidism can result from diseases of the thyroid gland itself (primary hypothyroidism) or it can result from disorders of the hypothalamus and pituitary gland (secondary or central hypothyroidism). Learn about the use of testing options for the differential diagnosis of thyroid dysfunction, treatment of hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism, with additional attention to special circumstances in the elderly.
