I've been struggling a bit with Nursing Diagnosis for diabetes. When the patient is controlled, then I use other symptoms they are having that are impacting their life (impaired mobility, activity intolerance, etc). But they are not directly related to DM
My instructor "hates" a risk for diagnosis. The only DM related diagnosises I found in NANDA are related to imbalance nutrition which if the DM is controlled, is not accurate to use.
Am I right in focusing on the current problems when the chronic big health issue has been managed? Thanks
