Type 1 AIT develops in patients with underlying thyroid abnormalities and is believed to be due to increased thyroid hormone synthesis and release; Type 2 AIT occurs in patients with a normal thyroid gland and is an amiodarone-induced destructive process of the thyroid. Management differs in the two forms of AIT, since Type 1 usually… CONTINUE READING
