To continue our endocrine series, today we’re talking about hyperthyroidism. Also known as Graves Disease, hyperthyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid produces too much hormone. Left untreated, it can lead to life-threatening complications.

In this podcast episode, Nurse Mo talks you through hyperthyroidism using the LATTE method…how will the patient LOOK, how will you ASSESS them, what TESTS will be ordered, what TREATMENTS will be provided, and how will you EDUCATE the patient? It’s a tried-and-true method that helps you focus on what you need to know for your clinical and nursing school exams!

Thanks so much for listening, thanks so much for all the kind words, and best of luck in school!
