Experience in treating congenital hypothyroidism: implications regarding free thyroxine and thyrotropin steady-state concentrations during optimal levothyroxine treatment.

Abstract

BACKGROUND A major problem in the treatment of patients with congenital hypothyroidism (CHT) is that the optimal individual target values of thyrotropin (TSH) and free thyroxine (fT(4)) are unknown. We investigated whether patients with CHT have during treatment considered optimal stable fT(4) and TSH steady-state concentrations (SSCs) that can be used as… (More)
