Should women be screened for postpartum hypothyroidism?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
There are no RCTs or Cochrane reviews to guide whether to screen for postpartum thyroiditis. Organizations including the US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF), the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), the Endocrine Society, and the American Thyroid Association (ATA) have noted that evidence is insufficient to screen all women for postpartum thyroiditis.
