Hashimoto’s thyroiditis deteriorates thyroid status within 5 years

September 22, 2016

Children with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis who are euthyroid or have subclinical hypothyroidism at diagnosis may develop overt hypothyroidism during the first 5 years of disease, study data show.

Filippo De Luca, MD, of the department of pediatrics at the University of Messina in Italy, and colleagues evaluated 234 children with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and no prognostic risk factors. Participants were divided into two groups based on biochemical thyroid status: euthyroidism (n = 170) or subclinical hypothyroidism (n = 64).
