This communication from the National Indian Patient-centered Thyroid management group (InPACT) deals with a novel, yet essential, aspect of hypothyroidism management. The authors describe the role and scope of patient-centered care in this condition. They focus on the relevance of a patient-centered clinical approach, which will help decide appropriate targets, as well as techniques to achieve those targets. Means of helping persons with hypothyroidism live a healthy life, such as education about precaution in concomitant food and medications intake, as well as sick day management, are discussed.
