Thyroid Lab Results and Instructions
Nancy Jones, Registered Nurse
Hello Jane. Your thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) level is high. Dr. Harris believes this is causing your fatigue and weight gain.
Dr. Harris ordered a prescription for Levothyroxine. You should start feeling better in a week or so, but we want to recheck your TSH in two weeks. I set a reminder for the follow up. I also selected three patient education links for you.
If you have any questions, please send me a message or call (215-555-5555, Ext. 5)
Levothyroxine Sodium (Synthroid), 175 mcg. 1 pill per day. Ready for pickup at pharmacy. Cost $4.23
Visit office for blood draw to recheck TSH in 2 weeks. No appointment needed. Email reminder set for 6/11/13.
