ABSTRACT: Thyroid function disorders are common with a female to male ratio of 4 to 1. In adult women primary hypothyroidism and thyrotoxicosis have a prevalence of 3.5/1000 and 0.8/1000, respectively. This guideline is aimed at secondary care providers especially internists, but also contains relevant information for interested general practitioners and gynaecologists. A multidisciplinary working group, containing delegates of professional and patient organisations, prepared the guideline. According to principles of 'evidence-based medicine' available literature was studied and discussed. Considering the availability and quality of published studies a practical advice was formulated. For a full overview of the literature and considerations the reader is referred to the original version of the guideline (accessible through NIV-net). In this manuscript we have aimed to provide the practicing internist with practical and 'as evidence-based as possible' treatment guidelines with respect to thyroid function disorders.
