Thanks, Diogenes.

E Subclinical hyperthyroidism was associated with an increased

risk of hip and other fractures, particularly among those with TSH levels of less than 0.10

mIU/L and those with endogenous subclinical hyperthyroidism. Further study is needed to

determine whether treating subclinical hyperthyroidism can prevent fractures.

Am I developing dementia or what? Does this include people taking thyroxine whose TSH is below 0.10 or just endogenous subclinical hyperthyroidism?



I'm not sure they've distinguished between exogenous and endogenous suppressed TSH. I do think they should.


Thank you very much Diogenes.
