A1116 Suspected Thyroid Disease: Best Approaches to Evaluation and Management

Saturday, November 3
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Location: W312BC, Orange County Convention Center

Topic(s): Endocrinology

Thyroid function tests frequently are ordered for pediatric patients presenting with nonspecific clinical complaints, even in the absence of distinct thyroid pathology or characteristic symptoms. Though the unexpected findings of lab results outside the normal range could indicate underlying thyroid pathology, most patients remain asymptomatic, normalize spontaneously, and require only monitoring. This session will help pediatricians manage pediatric patients confidently and competently without exposing them to unnecessary testing, procedures, specialty referral, or risk.
