Answer

See the list below:

  • Instruct patients regarding the importance of careful attention to health and fluid intake and to double maintenance doses when ill until medical attention is obtained.

  • Avoid exposure to chickenpox or measles; if exposed, seek medical advice without delay.

  • Notify physician or seek medical attention for persistent nausea and vomiting, fatigue, and abdominal pain.

  • For excellent patient education materials, see eMedicineHealth's Thyroid & Metabolism Center and patient education article Anatomy of the Endocrine System.
