Primary, Secondary, Tertiary, Grave's Disease, and Multinodular Goiter.
This blood serum lvl is monitored (& rationale) in the Pt w/Thyroid issues:
Serum Calcium levels are monitored. They are monitored for tetany.
This med is given to trt acute tetany:
IV Calcium Gluconate

Hashimoto's Thyroiditis
Is Hashimoto's Thyroiditis a form of Hypothyroidism or Hyperthyroidism?
Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism
This causes hyperlipidemia in Hypothyroidism:
Altered fat metabolism
These levels are checked in Pts w/Hypothyroidism:
TSH, Serum Cholesterol, Triglycerides
These levels are high in Pts w/Hypothyroidism:
Cholesterol, Triglycerides
If a Pts metabolic rate drops so low that it becomes life threatening the result is this:
Myxedema Coma
A 'Myxedema Coma' occurs in Pt's w/this:
Long standing, untreated Hypothyroidism.
Stress, infection, trauma, exposure to cold can l/t this:
Myxedema Coma
If a Pt becomes hypothermic (Temp < 95'), has < RR, < mental fxn, lethargy, <blood glucose, non-pitting edema of the face, hands, feet, this may be d/t this:
Myxedema Coma
Myxedema Coma Pts can die from this:
Respiratory Failure
This can occur in a Myxedema Coma:
Low Cardiac Output l/t decreased perfusion to the kidneys.
Pts w/long standing, untreated Hypothyroidism are at risk for this:
Myexdema Coma
This is one Nursing consideration for a Pt w/Hypothyroidism:
Constipation
This is one Nursing consideration for a Pt w/Hypothyroidism:
Impaired Skin Integrity
This is one Nursing consideration for a Pt w/Hypothyroidism:
Nutrition: More than req.
This is one Nursing consideration for a Pt w/Hypothyroidism:
Activity Intolerance.
Would the TSH lab value be low or high in Pts w/Hypothyroidism:
Low (clarify)
Would the Serum Cholesterol lab value be low or high in Pts w/Hypothyroidism:
High
Would the Triglyceride lab value be low or high in Pts w/Hypothyroidism:
High
