Project Title: Does Treating Subclinical Hypothyroidism Improve Patient’s Quality of Life? Authors: Julian Cammarano D.O.; Matthew Ludemann M.D.
Program: St. Anthony North Family Medicine
Abstract: Hypothyroidism has a high prevalence and is a medical disorder that is commonly seen in the setting of primary care. While positive effects have been well demonstrated in the treatment of hypothyroidism, this FPIN was meant to investigate what role thyroid replacement therapy has on quality of life parameters specifically in the setting of subclinical hypothyroidism.
Learning Objectives: Participants will be able to… • What role does Levothyroxine administration play in quality of life improvement in those with subclinical hypothyroidism? • Is there improvement in any symptomology w/ administration of Levothyroxine in those with subclinic hypothyroidism? • Understanding the limitations of the cited studies.
