Case study
You are a Registered Nurse working in the emergency department caring for Ben Summer who is 19 years of age.
Medical history
Ben visited his local doctor after experiencing increased appetite and excessive thirst. He has been unusually tired when playing football and hasnt been able to perform at his best. He has lost 10 kilograms of weight over a two week period and has been frequently urinating at night. The doctor suspected type 1 diabetes and tested his urine, which was positive for glucose and ketones. A random capillary blood glucose level was 25.0mmol/L and blood ketone level was 1.5mmol/L. Ben was advised to attend the hospital emergency department immediately.
Social history
Ben lives with his mother (Susan), father (John) and 12 year old brother (Jacob). He attends university full time, studying engineering and works at McDonalds on a casual basis. Ben plays football on the weekends and trains two days during the week. He has a girlfriend Rachel and they both enjoy surfing at the beach.
Emergency department review
Two hours after review by the local doctor, Bens capillary blood glucose level was 26.0mmol/L and blood ketone level was 1.6mmol/L. Other vital signs were within normal limits.
