Thyroid Thyroid Disease Encounter in the CS

hi everyone,
i am taking my CS next week and am extremely nervous. I am wondering what precise ?s to ask for hyper and hypothyroidism. i know of cold/heat intolerance and changes in hair and skin but what about in a case like diarrhea? also, how do we check the thyroid, do we give them a glass of water or just ask them to swallow?
thanks so much for everyone's help =]

It helps the SP if you can give them water, because it can be very difficult to swallow w/out it, and when they do this several times a day, gets really uncomfortable.
