Between 25-50% of the referrals to a pediatric endocrinology clinic are related to abnormal thyroid function tests (TFTs). However, the majority of these abnormal TFTs are not associated with a true thyroid problem, especially when these tests are ordered in the absence of any signs or symptoms suggestive of a thyroid disease. In this podcast, Francesco De Luca, MD, Division Director of Pediatric Endocrinology at Children’s Mercy Kansas City, covers tips for evaluating abnormal thyroid in the primary care setting.
