Metadata[+] Show full item record
While subclinical hypothyroidism (SCH) has been associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity, no clear evidence exists to suggest that treatment improves patient-oriented outcomes. In the short term, treating SCH improves diastolic function and cardiac relaxation time, but the clinical significance of these changes is uncertain. (SOR A, based on a systematic review.)
