The team at Medmastery are providing LITFL readers with a series of FOAMed courses from across their website.
In this video from the Thyroid Disease Masterclass course, we look at thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH); aka thyrotropin, thyrotropic hormone.
We review the “sandwich technique“; a common method by which thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is commonly measured.

I have lived most of my life in Seattle, Washington, where I first discovered my love of teaching as a rowing coach and where I have continued to nurture that passion as a clinical educator. When I’m not teaching Endocrinology at the medical school, I’m home teaching my four-year-old twin boys to be good people (and they are teaching me how to make Star Wars ships out of Lego).
