Interpreting Endocrinology Lab Results


The interpretation of endocrine diagnostic test results including thyroid and adrenal is perceived by many to be complex and confusing. Through a number of mini-cases and a few more detailed cases, this session will build confidence in the interpretation of lab results in situations of both common and uncommon endocrine diagnostic dilemmas.

The interactive session will cover example adrenal, thyroid and parathyroid/calcium cases. Delegates will vote on which topics they would most like to explore.

LO’s:

· Confidently recognise euthyroidism and hypothyroidism in laboratory test results

· Appropriately select and interpret laboratory tests in the investigation of adrenal disorders

· Understand the impact of non-thyroidal and non-adrenal illness on endocrine diagnostic test results

· Appropriately select and interpret laboratory tests for the monitoring of endocrine treatments

· Appropriately select and interpret laboratory tests in the investigation of calcium disorders
