Vital signs are: temperature 37.0°C (98.6°F), pulse 104/min, respirations 18/min and blood pressure 142/80 mm Hg. Physical examination is normal except for a mild bilateral hand tremor. Electrocardiogram shows sinus tachycardia but is otherwise normal. Which of the following diagnostic studies will most likely rule out an organic cause for her symptoms?

A

) 2-Hour postprandial serum glucose concentration

B

) Echocardiography

C
