Because people with diabetes are at greater risk for a long list of comorbidities, healthcare providers often must double as detectives to uncover complications. Several common, yet often underdiagnosed, complications are associated with diabetes. People with diabetes can also experience weight gain or weight loss, or complain of something not feeling right because of a variety of factors that warrant investigation. This module provides healthcare providers with strategies to detect common, yet often underdiagnosed, complications associated with hyperglycemia and diabetes. By improving their “diabetes detective” skills, healthcare providers can help patients improve the management of their diabetes — and their quality of life.
The goal of this diabetes continuing education program is to provide nurses and registered dietitians with strategies to detect common, yet often underdiagnosed, complications associated with hyperglycemia and diabetes. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
- Identify common, yet often underdiagnosed, complications associated with hyperglycemia, diabetes and weight gain
- Identify common, yet often underdiagnosed, complications associated with hyperglycemia, diabetes and weight loss
- Describe how medications, organ transplants and chronic illnesses can cause hyperglycemia
