Incorrect term?: "sick euthyroid" refers to a syndrome in which thyroid levels (t4, t3) appear low, but it is due to having a severe underlying medical disorder.

26/F. Would 10mg amitriptyline stop diarrhea in zollinger-ellison? Have chronic diarrhea x9 months. Gastro says IBS & amitriptyline stopped diarrhea.
