CC: ” I have been having excessive thirst and polyuria for the past 3 months”.
From the above, the likely diagnosis for the patient was type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). The rationale for this diagnosis is supported by the symptoms that the patient presented with such as frequent urination at night, excessive thirst, episodes of blurry vision, dysuria, polyuria, slow healing wounds as well as Acanthosis nigricans on the neck folds. The patient is obese, does not exercise, and has a family history of diabetes, which increases his risk of diabetes. The first line of treatment for the patient is metformin. Metformin works by inhibiting hepatic gluconeogenesis and opposing the action of glucagon (Rena et al., 2017).
