  4. A 35 year-old woman comes into your office with complaints of weight loss, anxiety and insomnia. She is a recovering alcoholic and has suffered liver damage due to alcoholic cirrhosis. She is concerned that this may be causing her symptoms, so she comes to you for help. Liver function tests indicate that she does have some damage to the liver and blood tests also indicate that she has circulating TSH-receptor antibodies. You diagnose her with Grave's Disease. What should be the next step in treatment for this patient (the most effective treatment)?

    A. methimazole
    B. thyroid hormone replacement
    C. propanolol
    D. propylthiouracil
    E. radioactive I
    E. radioactive I (side effect of propylthiouracil is liver failure; methimazole is the DOC for hyperthyroidism and Grave's Disease because it does not affect the liver, but Dr. Davis says that radioactive I is actually the best and most effective treatment)
