Radioactive Iodine Can Be First-Line for Hyperthyroidism, Says UK
New UK guidelines for the treatment of hyperthyroidism, including Graves’ disease, place heavier emphasis on the use of radioactive iodine as the frontline treatment for patients unlikely to remain remission-free on the medications, as opposed to the alternative of antithyroid medications as a first choice.
“Our evidence reviews indicated that radioactive iodine is the most clinically and cost-effective treatment for hyperthyroidism,” senior author Kristien Boelaert, MD, PhD, who led the guideline committee, told Medscape Medical News.
“Recommending the use of radioactive iodine as first-line treatment for adults with Graves’ disease is a change to current practice and should reduce the variation between centers as to when radioactive iodine is considered appropriate,” the guidelines further state.
