Thyroid dysfunction demonstrates a profound female bias and can present clinical conundrums for providers. This session will clarify diagnostic findings in clinical and sub-clinical hyper- and hypothyroidism, explore their impact on reproductive, mental, and CV health, and provide endocrinology tips to effectively treat selected thyroid diseases.
