- Answered 23 Jul 2019 Conflict of interest declaration: None CKS have a guideline on hypothyroidism (https://cks.nice.org.uk/hypothyroidism#!scenario) - For people who do not need admission or referral, treat overt primary hypothyroidism with levothyroxine (LT4) - Review the person every 3–4 weeks after initiation of LT4 and adjust the dose according to clinical and biochemical parameters... - Once a stable TSH is achieved, TSH can be checked 4–6 monthly and then annually The above is just the main points, the guideline has further detail.
