Thyroid Dysfunction: Screening
Release Date: March 2015
|Nonpregnant, asymptomatic adults|
The USPSTF concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of screening for thyroid dysfunction in nonpregnant, asymptomatic adults.
See the Clinical Considerations section for suggestions for practice regarding the I statement.
Literature scans conducted in April 2019 in the MEDLINE and PubMed databases and the Cochrane Library showed a lack of new evidence to support an updated systematic review on the topic at this time. See the Literature Surveillance Report under the Supporting Documents section of this webpage.
