Should you worry about them?

What can cause liver enzymes to be elevated? Lab interpretation for new nurse practitioners can be overwhelming!

In this video you'll learn:

  • When to worry about liver enzymes
  • The most common causes (and the step-by-step to rule them out)
  • When to refer to GI

What's one thing you learned from this video about elevated LFTs that you can take into your practice as a new grad NP (or soon to be!)?

Leave me a comment below. Be sure to share your thought directly in the comments, no links or videos as they may be removed.
