Here's this week's sample CME board review question on thyroid disorders:
A 33-year-old woman presents with hyperemesis. She is 8 weeks pregnant. She has no medical history and takes only prenatal vitamins. She does not smoke cigarettes, drink alcohol, or use illicit drugs. Her review of systems is negative for tremors, diarrhea, heat intolerance, weakness, or palpitations.
Her vital signs are as follows: temperature 37 °C, heart rate 110 beats/minute, blood pressure 110/68 mm Hg, respiratory rate 16 breaths/minute, and oxygen saturation 99% on room air.
An astute medical student has ordered a thyroid panel, which shows that her thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) is 0.2 mIU/mL (normal range, 0.4-4.0 mIU/L), and her total free thyroxine (T4) level is elevated.
This triggers a repeat examination which shows an absence of thyromegaly or goiter.
What is the next best step in the management of her condition?
