Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Thyroid status in the pregnant patient is sometimes difficult to assess due to the normal physiological changes associated with pregnancy. This chapter outlines the changes that occur in normal pregnancy and discusses thyroid hyperfunction during pregnancy, in particular. A careful clinical evaluation of the patient’s history, symptoms, and laboratory measurements will help the physician correctly assess thyroid status.
