HERNANDEZ-CASSIS, Carlos et al. About the consensus for the management of thyroid minimal dysfunctions. Salud, Barranquilla [online]. 2007, vol.23, n.2, pp.326-331. ISSN 0120-5552.

Subclinical hypothyroidism and its clinical consequences have been debated during several decades. With the publication of the Consensus Declaration about subclinical thyroid dysfunction by the Endocrine Society, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE), and the American Thyroid Association (ATA), a new field was open for endocrinologist in the management of some long ignored thyroid dysfunctions that did not have any therapeutic solution. The authors describe the paradigm shift and the changes in the diagnostic and therapeutic approaches. Later they recount some experiences developed in Colombia, S.A. Finally, they suggest some guidelines from their own experience and from other sources obtained in different fields of modern endocrinology.

Keywords : Hypothyroidism.
