    The evidence is what comes from your assessment. Did they say things that indicate a lack of knowledge?

    sorry, but i'm having difficulty trying to figure out what it is that you are asking. here are links to information on the nursing diagnosis of deficient knowledge that includes current nanda definition, related factors and defining characteristics among other things. the relationship between diabetes, diet, exercise and drugs used to treat it is something that you need to search out yourself from a number of sources, i.e. physiology textbooks, pathophysiology textbook, nursing textbook, nutrition textbook, pharmacology book and perhaps some online sources on diabetes. the aeb, or defining characteristics, of any nursing diagnostic statement is always abnormal assessment data that you collected on your patient which supports the nursing diagnosis. just like a medical diagnosis has signs and symptoms that define it, a nursing diagnosis also has signs and symptoms (called defining characteristics) that define it. you will find them listed for deficient knowledge on these websites.

    as evidenced by:

    patient being overweight (BMI of 46)
    patient having consistently high hgbA1C levels
    patient verbalizing that I don't need to exercise to keep my blood sugar under control.

    hope this helps.

    That should come from your assessment. Something the patient said or did should give you all the answers you need. You picked that nursing diagnosis for a reason, something you saw or hear or noticed right? AEB is your signs and symptoms.

    Thank you for your kind help. What puzzled me is my "verblizing", quote from my instructor, and she asked me to rewrite it. I get lost.

    Here is what i put,

    "a.e.b. pt seldom exercise, often eat junk food during work days, depending only on insulin to control blood glucose level."

    How could I reverblize it? since my pt is not overweigh, (he is type I), and his hgbA1C levels is also acceptable. ;(

    Deficient Knowledge: Diabetes related to misinterpretation of information as evidenced by patient statements that he does not follow a regular schedule of exercise, patient statement that he eats junk food during work hours rather than a nutritious meal, and statements that he uses Insulin as the only means to control blood sugar.
