In the initial phase (the first 2–3 months), TSH is slow in responding to treatment as it takes about 6–12 weeks for the pituitary gland to re-equilibrate to the new hormone status. Later in treatment, however, TSH can be used as a marker with higher confidence, but one must be aware that TSH still responds with some delay when the dose of levothyroxine is adjusted. Pathophysiological features therefore define not only the selection of monitoring tests but also the monitoring intervals in treated hypothyroidism.

Doctors are not always aware of analytical quality and biological variation when interpreting laboratory results [14]. Furthermore, they may think that if they ask for, for example, a carcinoembryonic antigen test to monitor colorectal cancer, or for ferritin to monitor renal anaemia in a patient taking epoetin, they will get the same type of result from each laboratory. However, tests are not by any means standardized; different technologies can measure different values or even differing forms of the given molecule.
