NCLEX tips and strategies on how to avoid 3 common mistakes students make when taking the NCLEX-RN or NCLEX-PN exam. Mistake 1: panicking when they don't get a certain amount of questions. Most students go into the NCLEX exam hoping to get either 75 or 85 questions because if they don't get this amount of questions they feel like they "may have" failed the exam. It is normal to receive a random number of questions on the NCLEX. So, if your computer doesn't shut off at that magic number of questions, keep going and give it your best. Mistake 2: waiting too long to take the exam after graduation. After you graduate nursing school, schedule to take the exam within 1-2 months. The nursing concepts are fresh on your mind and chances are you just got done taking exit exams which primed you for NCLEX. So, don't wait 6-8 months to schedule the exam...take it soon. Mistake 3: practicing NCLEX questions but not reading the rationales. It is best to study for the NCLEX exam by practicing questions, but you must go back and read the rationales of the questions you got right and wrong, especially the questions you got wrong. Then you need to go back in your study resource and read the areas you

Nclex Question: Diabetes Mellitus

Which statement by a nurse to a patient newly diagnosed with type 2 diabetes is correct? a. Insulin is not used to control blood glucose in patients with type 2 diabetes. b. Complications of type 2 diabetes are less serious than those of type 1 diabetes. c. Changes in diet and exercise may control blood glucose levels in type 2 diabetes. d. Type 2 diabetes is usually diagnosed when the patient is admitted with a hyperglycemic coma. ANS:C :Changes in diet and exercise may control blood glucose levels in type 2 diabetes. For some patients with type 2 diabetes, changes in lifestyle are sufficient to achieve blood glucose control. Insulin is frequently used for type 2 diabetes, complications are equally severe as for type 1 diabetes, and type 2 diabetes is usually diagnosed with routine laboratory testing or after a patient develops complications such as frequent yeast infections.

    Yes I’ve used these (this same exact kit appears under quite a few different brand name and generic) and the older walmart model which required you to soak a couple patches on a card with blood then mail them into a lab…
    The a1cNow style like you show here are reasonably easy to use… the patch card ones (which I believe no longer exist) were quite difficult.
    I wouldn’t have a ton of confidence of the precision accuracy of any of the above… I think generally they’d be most useful for people trying to figure out if they have an elevated A1C or if their A1C has significantly changed… not for someone analyzing the difference between a 5.8 and 6.0.

    I wouldnt pay $40 for one. I believe they’re substantially cheaper at Walmart.

    I use them all the time. They have always been very close to the lab results, usually within 0.1 or closer.

    Eric:
    Just based on what I know about you - in a pump emergency, start with 6.5 units of Levemir, twice a day, 12 hours apart (a total of 13 units). Adjust as needed.
    If you use Lantus, start with 9.5 units, twice a day, 12 hours apart (a total of 19 units). Adjust as needed.

    is there a reason that i would need so much more Lantus than Levemir (6.5 untis 2x/day, vs 9.5 units 2x/day?

    Can you get Levemir? I can send you some.

    i dont have Levemir. i only have the Lantus. and PS: i weighed 106 this morning. i am 5’4" tall (dont know if that makes a difference or not).

    daisymae:
    is there a reason that i would need so much more Lantus than Levemir (6.5 untis 2x/day, vs 9.5 units 2x/day?
    I calculated your dose and weight. The more you use per pound, the longer it lasts.
    BTW, I actually gave you a bit lower numbers for safety. I think you would actually need a bit more in reality, but it would depend on how active you were on the island, so I went with a lower number to be conservative.
    The reason you would need more Lantus is because it lasts longer than Levemir. It is spread out over a few more hours.
    Below is an interesting thing to read about it, but a little bit boring if you aren’t too into the science of all of this stuff. But skip to these sections which give a bit of info on release and dosing of Lantus (glargine) versus Levemir (detemir)

Patho Diabetes Nclex Questions

(Rationale: Classic signs of diabetes mellitus include polydipsia (excessive thirst), polyphagia (excessive hunger), and polyuria (excessive urination). Because the body is starving from the lack of glucose the cells are using for energy, the client has weight loss, not weight gain. Clients with diabetes mellitus usually don't present with constipation. Urine retention is only a problem is the patient has another renal-related condition.) A client with diabetes melllitus has a blood glucose of 644mg/dl. The nurse intreprets that this client is most at risk of developing which type of acid base imbalance? (Type 2 diabetes is a disorder usually occurring around the age of 40, but it is now being detected in children and young adults as a result of obesity and sedentary lifestyles.

    The cat with diabetes is already not in good health, and will get more so as time goes on.
    Diabetes does two things...it creates abnormal properties in the fluids through the presence of excessive glucose, like the blood and intercellular fluids. Plus, it severely. interrupts normal body metabolism.
    How long a cat can live this way depends to a great extent on how severe the diabetes is.
    As I mentioned, it first causes the body to excrete more urine in an attempt to eliminate the excess. The excess arises because the blood glucose can't get into the body's cells to be metabolized for energy because of the lack of sufficient insulin. If severe enough, the body resorts to alternate sources of energy, which results in a build up of moderately toxic by products, like ketone bodies.
    Additionally, the excess glucose can rise to such an extent that brain function is compromised, and the animal goes into a coma, from which it is likely to die.
    Just when is dependent on the severity of the condition and the strength of the animal. Your vet is the best person to offer an opinion on your cat's prognosis without treatment.
    Sorry I can't give a specific answer to your question, but hope you understand why. It may be a month, a year, more or less, or in between.
    Best wishes.
