We read the article by Song et al with great interest1 and thank the authors for exploring the relationship between subclinical hypothyroidism and sleep quality in a large general population. Subclinical hypothyroidism is a challenge to both patients and healthcare systems; potential sequelae include progression to hypothyroidism and cardiovascular disease.2 There are few studies exploring the relationship between subclinical hypothyroidism and sleep quality despite its extensive impact on health, as discussed in the current study. 1
