Is Subclinical Hypothyroidism Real and Should It Be Treated?

From JAMA Network:

Subclinical hypothyroidism is common [up to 10% of adults] and most individuals can be observed without treatment. Treatment might be indicated for patients with subclinical hypothyroidism and serum thyrotropin [TSH]  levels of 10 mU/L or higher or for young and middle-aged individuals with subclinical hypothyroidism and symptoms consistent with mild hypothyroidism.
