Default MTB 2 confusion!


i've searched for MTB 2 errata and found this link

but im not sure how updated this list is!
for example, MTB2 second edition P 120 it says that once ACTH is high and doesn't suppress with high dose Dexa test, do a brain MRI.
but on the other page, 121, in the table. it says high dose dexa [COLOR="rgb(153, 50, 204)"]suppresses[/COLOR] in pituitary causes.

another confusion, on page 112. it says that when TSH is less than double the normal, get antighyroid peroxidase/antithyroglobulin antibodies, and if they are positive, replace the hromone. but on the opposite page, 113, in the side box it says: antithbodies tells who needs hormone replacement when T4 is normal and TSH is high

am i reading/comprehending it wrong, im just confused or is it an error?

thanks in advance
