Trivia Tuesday

Relatively easy question as a segue into an important blog post for tomorrow:

An 18-year-old girl visits her college student health office for a required physical. She complains of irritableness and concerns about decision-making now that she has left home. On exam she appears exceedingly thin, with decreased muscle mass and dry skin. She is hypotensive, with resting bradycardia. What other finding is most likely to be present?

A. Calluses on her hands/fingers
B. Dental erosions
C. Hirsutism
D. Primary amenorrhea
E. Secondary amenorrhea

**Question From http://www.wikitestprep.org**
And if you’re feeling extra sassy today, what disease does she likely have and what diseases are the other answers associated with?

About The Author

I'm an ObGyn. I started this blog as a medical student (some would call that doctor school) and now I'm working as an Ob/Gyn, which is seriously the coolest job ever. I'm a twin mom and recently added a baby brudder to the mix. My life story through November 2010 can be viewed here. The events in the many years following can be summed up as wedding bells, books, exams, babies, and doctoring. I started this blog in hopes of landing a role in a Lifetime movie so I could quit medicine and move to Hollywood, but that hasn't happened...so if you wouldn't take medical advice from Angelina Jolie, you shouldn't take it from me. I may not even be a real person. In fact, I'm probably a spambot. Or possibly a 15 yo boy blogging from a dingy basement. If you're really interested you can read more about me here. If you have any questions or want to guest post contact me.
