Diagnosis

Diagnosis

Low serum TSH

High serum T4 and or high serum T3


Mild subclinical hyperthyroidism

Mild (subclinical) hyperthyroidism

Normal T4 and T3

Suppressed TSH


Subclinical hyperthyroidism
Subclinical hyperthyroidism

  • Mild to moderate iodine deficiency

  • Females

  • Smokers

  • Elderly

Prevalence in the community in older than 55 yrears: 0.7%-12.4%


Differential diagnosis of subclinical hyperthyroidism
Differential diagnosis of subclinical hyperthyroidism

  • Central hypothyroidism

  • Nonthyroidal illness

  • Recovery from hyperthyroidism, including thyroiditis


Subclinical hyperthyroidism1
Subclinical hyperthyroidism

Increased risk of mortality :

Small

Increases with

  • Age

  • degree of TSH suppression
