Document Content and Description Below

In addition, the application of national diabetes guidelines will be included into the patient’s management plan. This paper will also discuss the assessment of the primary, the secondary, and the differential diagnoses for Mrs. R., as well as the management plan for treatment of the primary, the secondary, and the differential diagnoses, which consists of diagnostics, medications, education, referrals, and follow-up care. This paper also includes a discussion on medication costs of all prescribed and over-the-counter (OTC) medications. Assessment According to the information provided by Mrs. R., she has symptoms of major concerns, which includes extreme fatigue, the inability to lose weight regardless of her attempts to exercise, her increase in thirst, hunger, and urination.

The result from her urine analysis showed glucose and small concentration of protein. Her HgbA1C is 6.9% and her fasting glucose is 126 mg/dL, which according to the American Diabetes Association (ADA) (2018), she meets the conditions for the diagnosis of diabetes.
