We studied the psychological performance and the quality of life in patients with differentiated thyroid carcinoma, either during treatment with chronic suppressive doses of levothyroxine, or during the withdrawal of levothyroxine needed to perform whole-body scanning with radioactive iodine, with those of appropriate healthy controls. Eighteen women with differentiated thyroid carcinoma and 18 euthyroid age-matched healthy women were recruited. Patients were studied the day before… Expand
