Description

When you’re a new nurse practitioner, there can be a lot of overwhelming, high-stress situations that you may find yourself in. 


A big contributing factor are lab interpretation resources — they’re scattered, hard-to-use, and don’t cover enough information. I used to DREAD opening up my lab results, but over time I went from avoiding my inbox to being obsessed with labs. 


How did I get there? I found the right tools and techniques to use. In this episode, I’m going to help eliminate the overwhelm as we walk step by step through a case study of a patient with high TSH levels. Together, we’ll:

  • Go over the three main steps of hypothyroidism assessment and management
  • Review components of holistic care
  • Talk about medications that can affect thyroid levels
  • And share pearls of practice


Get out your pen and paper because this episode is jam packed with information, and I know you will walk away feeling more confident and prepared for your next high TSH level patient!
