Abnormal thyroid function rivals diabetes mellitus as the most common type of endocrine disorder, and all doctors can expect to encounter thyroid disease in one form or another. These conditions are generally very responsive to treatment, but they can be difficult to diagnose not least because of frequent atypical presentations and the widespread prevalence of subclinical disease. Fast Facts: Thyroid disorders is an invaluable guide to help GPs recognise potential thyroid disorders so that they can treat and refer patients quickly. This comprehensive and practical handbook also discusses the particular challenges posed by thyroid disease during pregnancy and the management of thyroid eye disease.
