1. Rapid deep respirations- would be a finding of hyperglycemia 2. Cool clammy skin- Hypoglycemia causes cool clammy skin in addition to anxiety, nervousness, tachycardia, and confusion. 3. Abdominal cramping- would be a finding of hyperglycemia 4. Orthostatic hypotension- this would be caused by hyperglycemia because of the dehydration= hypotension You are teaching about glycosylated hemoglobin HbA1c testing. Which statement indicates understanding? 1. I need to fats after midnight the night before the test 2. This test is good indicator of my average blood glucose control 3. A level of 8% to 10% suggests adequate blood glucose control. 4. I will use my hemoglobin A1c level to adjust my daily insulin doses 1. I need to fats after midnight the night before the test- Does not need to fast, what the Pt eats the day before has no effect on the test. 2. This test is good indicator of my average blood glucose control- it reflects the PTs glucose levels over a 120 day period which is also the life span of the RBC 3. A level of 8% to 10% suggests adequate blood glucose control.- should be lower than 7% 4. I will use my hemoglobin A1c level to adjust my daily insulin doses - Should use ca

One of the initial and most common symptoms of peripheral neuropathy that diabetics notice is that their feet lose sensation and become numb. 2.Be alert to tingling and burning sensations. Another common symptom is uncomfortable sensations, such as tingling, pins and needles and/or burning pain. 3.Take note of increased sensitivity to touch, called hyperesthesia. Another alteration of foot sensations that develops in a minority of diabetics is an increase in sensitivity to touch. 4.Pay attention to cramps or sharp pains. As the peripheral neuropathy progresses, it starts to affect the muscles of the feet. 5.Be mindful of muscle weakness. As high glucose goes into nerves, water follows glucose by osmosis and also goes into nerves. 6.Check for toe deformities. If the muscles of your feet are weak and your gait is altered, it will likely cause you to walk abnormally and put additional pressure on your toes. 7.Be very cautious with any signs of injury or infection. Aside from falling and breaking a bone while walking, the most serious complication a diabetic faces is an injury to their feet. 8.Look for similar symptoms in your hands. Although peripheral neuropathy typically begins in the lower limbs, specifically the feet, it also eventually effects the smaller peripheral nerves that innervate the fingers, hands and arms. 9.Check yourself for signs of autonomic neuropathy. The autonomic system includes the nerves that automatically control your heart rate, bladder, lungs, stomach, intestines, genitals and eyes. 10.Be alert to changes in your vision. Both peripheral and autonomic neuropathies affect the eyes, as does the destruction of small blood vessels due to glucose toxicity. How to Check Feet for Complications of Diabetes.

What is HYPERNATREMIA? What does HYPERNATREMIA mean? HYPERNATREMIA meaning - HYPERNATREMIA pronunciation - HYPERNATREMIA definition - HYPERNATREMIA explanation - How to pronounce HYPERNATREMIA? Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/... license. Hypernatremia is a high sodium ion level in the blood. Early symptoms may include a strong feeling of thirst, weakness, nausea, and loss of appetite. Severe symptoms include confusion, muscle twitching, and bleeding in or around the brain. Normal serum sodium levels are 135 - 145 mmol/L (135 - 145 mEq/L). Hypernatremia is generally defined as a serum sodium level of more than 145 mmol/L. Severe symptoms typically only occur when levels are above 160 mmol/L. Hypernatremia is typically classified by a person's fluid status into low volume, normal volume, and high volume. Low volume hypernatremia can occur from sweating, vomiting, diarrhea, diuretic medication, or kidney disease. Normal volume hypernatremia can be due to fever, inappropriately decreased thirst, prolonged increased breath rate, diabetes insipidus, and from lithium among other causes. High volume hypernatremia can be due to hyperaldosteronism, be health care caused such as when too much intravenous 3% normal saline or sodium bicarbonate is given, or rarely be from eating too much salt. Low blood protein levels can result in a falsely high sodium measurement. The cause can usually be determined by the history of events. Testing the urine can help if the cause is unclear. If the onset of hypernatremia was over a few hours, then it can be corrected relatively quickly using intravenous normal saline and 5% dextrose. Otherwise correction should occur slowly with, for those unable to drink water, half-normal saline. Hypernatremia due to diabetes insipidus as a result of a brain disorder, may be treated with the medication desmopressin. If the diabetes insipidus is due to kidney problems the medication which is causing it may need to be stopped. Hypernatremia affects 0.3-1% of people in hospital. It most often occurs in babies, those with impaired mental status, and the elderly. Hypernatremia is associated with an increased risk of death but it is unclear if it is the cause. The major symptom is thirst. The most important signs result from brain cell shrinkage and include confusion, muscle twitching or spasms. With severe elevations, seizures and comas may occur. Severe symptoms are usually due to acute elevation of the plasma sodium concentration to above 157 mmol/L (normal blood levels are generally about 135145 mmol/L for adults and elderly). Values above 180 mmol/L are associated with a high mortality rate, particularly in adults. However, such high levels of sodium rarely occur without severe coexisting medical conditions. Serum sodium concentrations have ranged from 150228 mmol/L in survivors of acute salt overdosage, while levels of 153255 mmol/L have been observed in fatalities. Vitreous humor is considered to be a better postmortem specimen than postmortem serum for assessing sodium involvement in a death. The cornerstone of treatment is administration of free water to correct the relative water deficit. Water can be replaced orally or intravenously. Water alone cannot be administered intravenously (because of osmolarity issue), but rather can be given with addition to dextrose or saline infusion solutions. However, overly rapid correction of hypernatremia is potentially very dangerous. The body (in particular the brain) adapts to the higher sodium concentration. Rapidly lowering the sodium concentration with free water, once this adaptation has occurred, causes water to flow into brain cells and causes them to swell. This can lead to cerebral edema, potentially resulting in seizures, permanent brain damage, or death. Therefore, significant hypernatremia should be treated carefully by a physician or other medical professional with experience in treatment of electrolyte imbalance, specific treatment like ACE inhibitors in heart failure and corticosteroids in nephropathy also can be used.

What is Diabetes insipidus? There are two types of diabetes in dogs. Diabetes mellitus (DM) is also called “sugar diabetes” and results from a disruption of pancreas function and abnormal regulation of blood sugar. The term, meaning “sweetened with honey,” originated from the fact that the urine of these patients was “sweet” due to high amounts of sugar excreted from the body. Diabetes insipidus (DI) gets its name from the fact that t ...
A 14 y/o female is brought to the emergency department by her mother after being found unresponsive at home. She had been ill the day before with nausea and vomiting, but was not running a fever. Her parents had kept her home from school that day. When her mother came home at lunchtime to check on her, she was very lethargic and not responding coherently. By the time she arrived at the hospital, she had to be brought in to the ED on a gurney. Ini ...
ABGs vs. VBGs Do we need to get ABGs in the ED or are VBGs enough? Blood gas testing can be an extremely valuable part of Emergency Department (ED) assessment of patients. Blood gasses rapidly give the clinician a host of vital information including pH, PCO2, lactate, electrolytes and hematocrit. These data can be used to determine acid-base status, anion gap and the presence of tissue hypoperfusion. Arterial blood gas (ABG) testing was the stand ...
