!!! If you or your provider is solely looking at TSH levels, please know this is <1% of the big picture! Absolutely request a full and complete thyroid panel....always. This includes free T3, free T4, antibodies x 2, reverse T3, ferritin level and sometimes TBG.
Also, ADRENAL and HORMONAL balance must be addressed, as well as "gut health." Otherwise, you'll find yourself spinning in circles!
Ok, patients and providers in Tennessee.....We need some help here (see below):
Representative Barry Doss (and others) NEED TO HEAR FROM YOU!! From each and every one of you!
It is beyond me that nurse practitioners are against this bill!!!
Couple of things:
The passing of this bill does not just give us the freedom to do whatever we want.
It only applies to experienced NPs.
We will continue to be monitored by state and federal entities. We will continue to have to maintain our licensure and national certifications (daunting tasks in and of themselves)!
What people must understand is those NPs practicing in rural areas cannot survive under the current guidelines.
AND the skewed # of narcotics issues by NPs is related to PAIN CLINICS that are primarily managed by NPs but OWNED by MDs.
The collab MDs sign off, but the NPs name is listed as the primary prescriber!!
I have less than a dozen patients on narcotics in my clinic! This is true of the majority of NP-run clinics.
Again, these are attempts to keep us under extreme limitations and limit us from seeing patients who desperately need our help.
Almost 1/2 of US states have passed this bill!! It is a fair and just bill for the patients we serve yet does not relinquish us as NPs from our government mandates!
We need everyone's help in passing this bill!
Latest news re: NP autonomy:
Hello everyone. I just heard from Wilhemina and was told the bill was not presented to the subcommittee today. There are nurse practitioners who are opposing the passing of the bill. Representative Barry Doss, Vice Chair for subcommittee, was a supporter but has heard from other NPs, one being his sister, that he should not support the bill because of the high numbers of opioids prescribed by NPs. They are in the Lawrenceburg and Leoma area. If you know of any NPs in this area, please have them to contact Rep Doss and encourage him to consider supporting the bill. If we do not have the support, the bill will not be presented during this session.
