Subclinical Hypothyroidism
  • Significant number of patients who are screened for thyroid disease have marginally increased serum TSH(thyrotropin-stimulating hormone)levels but their free thyroxine(t4) levels are within normal limits.This state,termed "subclinical hypothyroidism" is commonly an early stage of hypothyroidism.
  • Subclinical Hypothyroidism is quite common amongst ladies and older persons.
  • Clinical suspicion of hypothyroidism may be delayed because symptoms such as fatigue and constipation,and other early manifestations of thyroid failure may be attributed to aging itself.
