Results
  • It remains unclear whether SCH leads to significant mood and cognitive impairments in most older patients.
  • More research is required to determine the nature and extent of this association and whether thyroid hormone replacement therapy is appropriate and effective in treating SCH-associated neurobehavioral impairments.
