Be sure to get regulate follow-up care.-regular follow-up care for the client with graves disease is critical because most cases eventually result in hypothyroidism. annual thyroid-stimulating hormone tests and the clients ability to recognize signs and symptoms of thyroid dysfunction will help detect thyroid abnormalities early. intake and output is important for clients with fluid and electrolyte imbalances but not thyroid disorders. ddavp is used to treat diabetes insipidus. while exercise to improve cardiovascular fitness is important, for this client the importance of regular follow-up is most critical.
