Abstract

The thyroid gland undergoes changes with normal aging. Although diseases of the thyroid gland are not uncommon at this time of life, atypical and nonspecific signs and symptoms lead to diagnostic difficulties and often a delay in diagnosis. Once a diagnosis is confirmed, treatment must be individualized with appropriate follow-up. This review discusses normal changes and diseases of the thyroid gland common in the elderly patient. Specific medications used in therapy are also discussed.
