here we go again...
i'm working on a concept map for a case scenario. no real patient to asses...just the information given by the instructor.
"patient" is an 82 year old female diagnosed with type ii diabetes mellitus and dementia. she is experiencing hyperglycemia with blood sugars running consistently over 285. she is hungry all the time and forgets that she has eaten.
i do not, however, know if the "patient" is overweight.
i want to use the diagnosis imbalanced nutrition: more than body requirements based on the fact that she is eating all the time. were this a real patient, i would assess her dietary habits, weight, glucose levels, and activity level. i feel like there is more i could look at, but at the moment i'm drawing a blank.
any help would be greatly appreciated!
