Re:Ms Raquel Jackson,aged 62 years
I am referring Ms Raquel Jackson who requires urgent assessment and management for hypoglycemia due to drug interactions.
Ms Jackson has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes since 2008.On 16 September 2020 she underwent a laproscopic cholecystectomy and was managed conservatively.Inaddition home visits were organised for 5 weeks as her daughter has gone for a tour.
Initially Ms Jackson was well, talkative and can walk around the house.She made a good progress.On 09 October 2020 heart burn was developed and contacted to her Gp.As a result,her Gp advised to start cetedine after cease metformin.
Today,as a part of home visits Ms Jackson was found to be weak ,tired,confused and still on metformin.On examination,her HBA1C was 4% and blood glucose level was 3.1%.
In view of the above,it would be highly beneficial to evaluate and support Ms Jackson.
Should you have any further queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
