Basic Science and Clinical Evidence Regarding Treatment of Subclinical Hypothyroidism During PregnancyGYAMFI BANNERMAN, CYNTHIA MDClinical Obstetrics & Gynecology: September 2011 - Volume 54 - Issue 3 - p 488–492 doi: 10.1097/GRF.0b013e3182272fca Thyroid Disease in Pregnancy Abstract Author Information The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists has stated that routine screening and treatment of subclinical hypothyroidism cannot be recommended. Yet, after reviewing the same literature, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists, the American Thyroid Association, and the Endocrine Society recommend routine screening and treatment for these women. Our objective is to review the basic science and clinical evidence supporting (or refuting) for treatment of pregnant women with subclinical disease.
