Current evidence is inadequate to recommend treatment of all women with subclinical hypothyroidism, but the ongoing trial will provide new evidence on this association. Future studies should focus on the natural history of euthyroid autoimmune thyroiditis, and its effects on pregnancy complications and how they could be prevented. More focus should be put on how to improve safety of antithyroid drugs to prevent both maternal and neonatal complications.
