FRIDAY, March 10, 2017 (HealthDay News) -- Two additional quick-reference tools, which offer guidance on management of various thyroid disorders, have been launched by the American Thyroid Association.

The new resources, Thyroid Disease During Pregnancy and Hyperthyroidism, are the newest in a range of printed pocket card and mobile app summaries of guideline recommendations. Other resources in the range include Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma, Hypothyroidism, Pediatric Thyroid Cancer, Anaplastic Thyroid Cancer, and Thyroid Nodules and Differentiated Thyroid Cancer.

The guidelines are available through a website, which links to the published guidelines and to the pocket cards. Quick reference pocket cards and mobile apps will be updated with improved diagnostic tools, emerging research, and new treatment options as new treatment guidelines and updates are published. Guidelines are revised every three to five years.

"These cards are a great resource for the busy clinician, and really helpful in coalescing the large amount of data into a concise guide," Erik Alexander, M.D., co-chair of the Thyroid Disease During Pregnancy guidelines, said in a statement.
