If the random BM is >11.1 then the patient has diabetes as they're symptomatic - no further diagnostic tests required. OGTT is only needed if the BM is >7.0 but <11.1
Sorry, 2 monthes off and I've forgotten how to diagnose diabetes!

Yes so you test for frank diabetes and igt, and if they can't come in for ogtt, hba1c? Suppose it comes back non diabetic or with igt then do you admit, start looking for clever causes? Or if the random bm <7, forget dm or is it worth checking anyway? I know the stress response would push sugar up...

You'd be hard pushed to get any acute medical firm to admit a patient this well just for investigation. I'd assume that you'd do some regular bloods when you do the HbA1c as well, and act on anything else that comes up there.

They've been doing that one for a while now and still haven't managed to get it right? Not looking forward to being the 2nd cohort for the new system

Hello from Chichester! Having an ace week, although is still introductory stuff (meeting firm heads, practicing examinations on each other etc), feel like clinical years are gonna be ace. Went to first medical grand rounds this afternoon, all way over my head.

The city is great, not too busy but very nice and with a very good bunch here, all went to the coast today for a wander.

Only problem is lack of internet in our rooms (RAGE!!), so am in the education centre to get some.

Clinical years. Well the clinical bit is so far so good. The rest of university is circling the ****ter though. Sigh. I didn't need this.

I'm commencing the year on surgical rotation. An 'upper and lower GI' ward is my initial ward.

On setting out to get drunk with the Freshers I never imagined one of them would piss me off that much.
