Dr. Regina Castro presents the discussion around treating subclinical hypothyroidism, thyroid extract, and how to differentiate common symptoms from non-thyroid causes. Dr. Castro covers nodules, fine needle aspirates, the Sensitive TSH test, Total T4, Free T4, and TPO antibodies, and the role of lab testing in diagnosis.
