Thyroid function during ageing

Recently we were involved in publishing a review article about the clinical aspects of thyroid function during ageing.

One of the most common disorders in older people is thyroid dysfunction. However, the diagnosis of thyroid dysfunction in older people is hindered by several factors, including the scarcity of thyroid dysfunction symptoms in older people. The review discusses the physiological changes in thyroid function that occur with increasing age, as well as treatment considerations for clinical and subclinical thyroid dysfunction according to international guidelines for older people.
