Abstract

The current approach for calculating the starting dose of levothyroxine (LT4) after total thyroidectomy is based on the patient's body weight (BW). The aim of the study was to identify the major predictive factors of LT4 requirement and to elaborate a new method to improve the accuracy of the LT4 starting dose after total thyroidectomy.
