Example text

Given that the patient is already performing HBGM, it is not unreasonable for her to continue this practice. Fasting, pre-meal and pre-bed glucose testing is the norm, with targets below 10 mmol/L without hypoglycaemia being reasonable in this case. HbA1c testing could also be performed for comparison with the pretreatment level. Symptomatic improvement is the main aim of therapy, and the HbA1c target needs to be individualized since the benefits of tight control in this age group are unproven and the side effects of treatment (especially hypoglycaemia) are dangerous.

They are most useful in the latter, where surgical intervention can be considered when entrapment is confirmed. Bloods to exclude hypothyroidism and vitamin B12 deficiency (more common with metformin treatment) should also be requested. 24 Diabetes A3: What examination would you perform? Examination of the feet for abnormal sensation using monofilaments and vibration sensation as screening tools can be done. Ulceration (painless) should be excluded and skin care assessed. Peripheral pulses should be examined, which may be enhanced (‘bounding’) in the neuropathic foot.

Peripheral neuropathy symptoms (to which burning dysaesthesiae may be added) are of gradual onset, typically worse at rest and in bed, when bedclothes can be particularly irritating. Autonomic neuropathy (rare) may also be present, with symptoms including gustatory sweating (facial sweating after meals) and postural hypotension. Carpal tunnel syndrome is common at night, patients often being awoken with discomfort and typically shaking the hand to relieve symptoms. g. in painting) may also induce symptoms.
