Administration of exogenous thyroid hormones, such as levothyroxine, turns off this feedback loop, which results in a decreased level of TSH. 3) A nurse is reviewing the medication list for a client who has a new diagnosis of type 2 diabetes mellitus.

This statement indicates the client needs further teaching. b) "I take this medication at the same time each day." i) Rationale: The client should take warfarin at the same time each day to maintain a stable blood level. c) "I eat a green salad every night with dinner." i) Rationale: Green leafy vegetables are a good source of vitamin K, which can interfere with the clotting effects of warfarin. Clients who are taking warfarin do not need to restrict dietary vitamin K intake but rather should maintain a consistent intake of vitamin K in order to control the therapeutic effect of the medication. d) "I had my INR checked three weeks ago. i) " Rationale: Clients who have been taking warfarin for more than 3 months should have their INR level checked every 2 to 4 weeks.
