"diagnoses r/t DM"
I'm not sure using a medical dx is a proper for an etiology.
What type of DM is it?
imbalanced nutrition less/more then body requirements ( depending on DM type AND actual condition)
and as brookes said
ineffective health maintenance r/t deficient knowledge regarding care of diabetic condition
are a few from Ackley et Ladwig p.44
Its probaly a good idea to fit the Dx to the pt, and not the pt to the Dx - does the pt. have impaired skin integrity, special risks, etc. Don't get locked into the DM thing. Consider the pt. holistically. -crap i sound like a text, shoot me
How old is the client?
Keep in mind I'm a student myself- so take with a grain of salt
