Lab 10: Diagnosis of patient

Based on the urinalysis, I have come to the conclusion that this patient is diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. To begin with, the patient has a family history of diabetes which could have ultimately lead to the reason why their glucose level was higher than a normal glucose level, which is a strong indicator of diabetes. Due to the family history, the patient has been left to control their own level of insulin. Insulin is the hormone that controls glucose from carbohydrates that are consumed by the individual. High or low levels of insulin can lead to hyperglycemia (high) or hypoglycemia (low). If blood sugar levels decrease, it also decreases the secretion of insulin in the pancreas.​ (Mayo clinic, 2017)​ ​Type 1 diabetes occurs when not enough insulin is produced due to your immune system eliminating beta cells which are the cells that produce insulin. (endocrineweb, 2018) This being said, the patient is not controlling their insulin levels properly. The patient also had a “high normal” blood pressure which doesn’t necissarily mean they have diabetes, but rather that they are at high risk for it. The patient showed to have a normal systolic pressure and a lower diastolic pressure which could be classified as “high normal”. (BloodpressureOK) The patient is close to being in hypertension stage 1, which often affects patients with diabetes. The patient meets many the symptoms of type 1 diabetes rather than type 2. This is evident due to the fact that type 1 diabetes often affects younger people and a low weight also plays as a symptom. The patient was observed to be “thin, pale, and anxious”, given this information, it is admissible to say that this patient is diagnosed with type 1 diabetes.
