NACB Laboratory Medicine Practice Guidelines
Clinicians need laboratory tests of thyroid function whenever there is suspected thyroid disease. This monograph represents an updated version of previously published guidelines on thyroid function testing and discusses common thyroid problems, pre-analytic issues, and offers recommendations on the clinical utility, methodology, and performance goals of select thyroid function tests including tests of thyroid autoimmune disease. The monograph also makes recommendations on how the clinical biochemist can collaborate effectively with clinicians to improve the selection and use of thyroid tests for patient care.
