I'm working on a careplan for a type 1 DM patient. He was admitted for hyperglycemia. He hasn't checked his BS levels or took insulin in 2 years. He doesn't currently watch what he eats.
I'm wanting to use imbalanced nutrition as one of my diagnosis' but I'm having problems wording it. This is what I've come up with.
Imbalanced nutrition: more than body requirements related to patient not consuming proper diet, checking blood glucose leves, or taking insulin as manifested by elevated blood glucose levels.
What do you think? I'm feel okay as for the interventions I have, just wanted feedback on my wording. Any other advice is more than welcome also! Thanks.
