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.
