Dr. Rouzier will be discussing: This review will demonstrate that the high circulating thyroid hormone levels resulting from HDT is fundamentally different than hyperthyroidism. High dose thyroid differs from hyperthyroidism in significant ways.
While hyperthyroidism is a significant cardiovascular risk factor causing a 20% premature death rate,
HDT treatment does not appear to be a significant cardiovascular risk.
The sequela of hyperthyroidism are increasing tied to autoimmune complications which are absent with HDT.
Equating hyperthyroidism with HDT is incorrect.
The first myth is that HDT is a risk factor for developing osteoporosis and the second myth is that HDT increases cardiovascular risk.
The cardiovascular risks of HDT appear to be low.
HDT is at least as safe as or safer than many psychiatric medications. It is effective and well tolerated.
This inaccuracy has been promulgated by the chronic misuse of terminology (i. e. calling all suppressed TSH or elevations of thyroid hormones hyperthyroidism) in the literature there is at best confusion about the difference between HDT and hyperthyroidism.
At worst there is remarkably resolute conviction that there is no difference.
To sum, the use of HDT is not equivalent to hyperthyroidism.
