Update on the diagnosis and treatment of hyperthyroidism
Siraj ES

Educational Needs Addressed Signs and symptoms of hyperthyroidism are wide-ranging and the frequency and severity of symptoms can vary, which makes diagnosis a challenge. Primary care physicians are often the first to evaluate these patients. A detailed evaluation that includes questions about extent and duration of symptoms, past medical history, family history, physical examination (including thyroid examination), and appropriate laboratory tests can help guide the treating physician to the etiology. Proper management depends on properly identifying the cause of hyperthyroidism. Regular monitoring for changes in thyroid function is required, as prognosis can be adversely affected if a euthyroid state is not maintained. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Differentiate between etiologies of hyperthyroidism 2. Describe management options for subclinical hyperthyroidism 3. Outline the typical course of and management strategies for subacute thyroiditis 4.
