New American Thyroid Association guidelines on hyperthyroidism
 
The American Thyroid Association (ATA) has issued new guidelines for diagnosis and management of hyperthyroidism and other causes of thyrotoxicosis.
 
Published online August 17, 2016 in the journal Thyroid, these guidelines include 124 evidence-based recommendations. Some recommendations are as below: 
  • “Hyperthyroidism” has been defined as a form of thyrotoxicosis due to inappropriately high synthesis and secretion of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland. And, “thyrotoxicosis" is a clinical state resulting from inappropriately high thyroid-hormone action in tissues generally due to inappropriately high tissue thyroid hormone levels.
  • Serum TSH is recommended as an initial screening test. When thyrotoxicosis is strongly suspected, diagnostic accuracy improves when a serum TSH, free T4 and total T3 are assessed at the initial evaluation.
  • Medical therapy of any comorbid conditions should be optimized prior to radioactive iodine (RAI) therapy.
