Biochemistry Update on Endocrine & Lipids

Biochemistry Update on Endocrine & Lipids

About this Video

  • Does your heart sink when you arrive in the morning to a full pathology inbox?
  • Does an endocrine result beyond TFTs and HbA1c get you wondering what next?
  • Do your patients ask you for the blood test “to see if I am menopausal Doc”?
  • Do you get confused about the latest guidance around lipids?
  • Are you seeing more requests for inclisiran but not quite sure what it is/how to prescribe it?

If you are looking at these questions and a thinking “yes” then this educational resource is for you, we will be covering topics that aren’t often covered in Biochemistry. The whole aim of this webinar is to help you manage pathology results more confidently.

Consultant Chemical Pathologist and Lipidologist Dr Paul Downie, from Salisbury District Hospital, will be joining us to cover the less well-known parts of biochemistry.

Aimed at GPs, during the 2-hour session we will cover:

  • Common pitfalls in endocrine testing
    • Abnormal thyroid results
    • Parathyroid hormone requesting
    • Testosterone deficiency
    • Diagnosis of menopause
    • Cortisol testing
    • Investigation of hyper/hypoadrenalism
  • Lipids
    • An educational update
    • Pragmatic view of how to manage lipids in primary care
    • Management of triglycerides
    • How to search for potential cases of familial hypercholesterolaemia
    • Statin mythbusters & practical advice
    • Newer therapies including inclisiran
