Clinical Practice Guidelines

This document was prepared as a collaborative effort between the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE), American College of Endocrinology (ACE) and Associazione Medici Endocrinologi (AME). These guidelines cover diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of thyroid nodular disease but not thyroid cancer management.

Hypothyroidism has multiple etiologies and manifestations. Appropriate treatment requires an accurate diagnosis and is influenced by coexisting medical conditions. This paper describes evidence-based clinical guidelines for the clinical management of hypothyroidism in ambulatory patients.

Thyrotoxicosis has multiple etiologies, manifestations, and potential therapies. Appropriate treatment requires an accurate diagnosis and is influenced by coexisting medical conditions and patient preference.

The newly released white paper, Computer Interpretable Guidelines in Thyroid Nodule Management, presented by Jeffrey R. Garber, MD, FACP, MACE, at our 2021 Annual Meeting is now available. This manuscript describes The Thyroid Nodule App (termed TNAPP), a novel interactive web-based tool that uses clinical, imaging, cytologic, and molecular marker data to guide clinical decision making to evaluate and manage thyroid nodules.
Clinical practice guideline (CPG), clinical practice algorithm (CPA), and clinical checklist (CC, collectively CPGAC) development is a high priority of the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) and American College of Endocrinology (ACE).
