QOD9: Activities of Daily Living in a Patient with Myasthenia Gravis (Neurology/Basic Care and Comfort)

Answer:

A.  Eating breakfast

Rationale: 

Myasthenia gravis is an autoimmune disorder characterized by weakness of skeletal muscles and fatigue with exertion. The patient would most likely have difficulties with performing activities of daily living that require exertion or use of muscles; this would include eating or grooming. It would be less difficult for a patient to participate in more passive activities.
