This assessment task will assist you in the development of this knowledge. Task description Meet Simon. Simon is a bubbly 13 year old boy who loves playing cricket and teasing his 9 year old sister. Last month Simon had to miss the last three cricket matches of the season when he was diagnosed with influenza. Simon has just returned from year 7 school camp. He noticed that when he was away he was very thirsty and passing more urine than usual and had trouble keeping up with his mates on the camp activities. He thought he was still recovering from the flu. When he got home from camp his Dad thought he looked thinner and unwell so took him to the GP. The GP suspects that Simon has developed diabetes. The GP uses the point of care blood glucose meter to check Simon’s blood glucose level and finds that it is 15.9 mmol/L. He uses the blood ketone meter to check for ketones and the result is 2.6 mmol/L. Your task: There are 2 parts to this assignment. Dedicate equal weight to each section. Part 1 Identify what type of diabetes is consistent with Simon’s symptoms and clinical features. Explain your rationale and the investigations and clinical assessments that should be performed to confirm the diagnosis and type of diabetes for Simon, including when, how and why these are performed. Part 2 Describe the pathophysiology of diabetes in relation to the clinical presentation of Simon’s diabetes. Explain the metabolic abnormalities observed in Simon’s case study in contrast to normal carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism.
