The nurse should assess which of the following in a child newly diagnosed with hyperthyroidism? Select all that apply.
1. Weight gain.
2. Dry skin.
4. Rapid pulse.
5. Heat intolerance.
Rapid pulse, heat intolerance, diarrhea, exophthalmos, and accelerated linear growth are more characteristic of hyperthyroidism, which is caused by an autoimmune response to thyroid-stimulating hormone receptors. Weight gain, dry skin, and constipation are characteristic of hypothyroidism, which results from a deficiency in secretion of thyroid hormone.
