2 Objective At the end of this session, students will be able to:
Identify differential diagnosis of a case presented with the symptoms of polyuria and polydipsia. Identify the prevalence of diabetes mellitus (DM) in the Saudi community. Discuss the classification of DM . Discuss briefly about the diagnostic criteria for DM. Identify the patho-physiological changes in a diabetic patient. Enumerate and discuss the importance presenting signs & symptoms of DM. Investigate appropriately a patient with DM. Advice initial management plan for a patient diagnosed first with DM. Discuss different medication used in DM management . Identify importance of life style changes in diabetic patients. Discuss screening criteria for DM.

3 Case Study A 25-year-old man, who works as a clerk in a company, has presented to the clinic today with the complaint of increased thirst, and increased urination . These complaints initiated for last few weeks. He admitted that he was in Makkah for Omra and started to have these symptoms, but he assumed that these symptoms were due to hard works and running from here to there in Makkah. But he is worried that the symptoms are continuing even he is back home and having usual sedentary life. He also complaint of generalized weakness, otherwise on other complaint. He is not known to have any other chronic illness.

4 On examination: Look well. His height is 160 cm and his weight is 98 kg. Systematic examination revealed normal findings, apart from being obese.

5 Differential diagnosis of a case presented with the symptoms of poluria and polydipsia
DM DI Psychological Polydipsia check blood check ADH ask about sugar level level water intake NEED TO BE TESTED

6 Diabetes Insipidus : It is a condition characterized by excessive thirst and polyuria secondary to deficiency of ADH (cranial DI) or kidney does not respond to ADH (nephrogenic DI) . - No hyperglycemia or glucose in urine in case of diabetes insipidus.

7 Diabetes mellitus : causes poluria via a process called osmotic diuresis due to the high blood sugar leaking into the urine and taking excess water along with it.

Pt complain of poluria ,polydipsia ,weakness have 2 risk factor : obesity & sedentary lifestyle DM more common than DI. DI LESS LIKELY Pt Systematic examination is normal usually come with other symptom ( dehydration, fever , vomiting ,diarrhea) DI less common than DM

9 is a group of metabolic disorders characterized by hyperglycemia and abnormalities in carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism. It results from defects in insulin secretion, insulin sensitivity, or both.

10 points to be included in history taking
1) C .O : How can I help you? 2) HPI : When did the symptoms start? Associated symptoms? e.g. loss of appetite , decrease vision

11 3) Past medical history: Social Hx : Occupation, education , smoking , alcohol , marital state , living condition . Family Hx : Dm , hypertension , Tb , asthma Any other diseases ? Surgical Hx .

12 MAIN THINGS 1_ family history of DM 2_ sex and age 3_ life style include diet & physical activity. 4_ Symptoms & when did they start. 5_ complication

13 prevalence of (DM) in the KSA
Study of WHO in 2004 : 23.7 % From Ann Saudi Med Jan: Age 12_19 20_29 30_39 40_49 50_59 60_69 Above 70 Male 1,1% 4,4% 14,3 % 29,9 % 60,2% 71,8% %65,7 Female %2,6 %4,7 %10,8 %33 57,1% 64,9% 61,7 %



16 Non classic presentations Infection Skin (carbuncles)
WHEN IS DM SUSPECTED Non classic presentations Infection Skin (carbuncles) Urinary tract infection Ear infection (fungal) No Pruritus Fatigue Visual symptoms Sensory symptoms Delayed healing Classic presentation Polyuria Polydipsia Polyphagia Weight loss Hyperglycemic crisis


18 account for 5% to 10% of all cases.
Occur in childhood or early adulthood. develops when the body’s immune system destroys pancreatic beta cells, causing absolute insulin deficiency. Risk factors for type 1 diabetes may include autoimmune, genetic, and environmental factors.

19 There is a long preclinical period (up to 9 to 13 years) marked by the presence of immune markers. Hyperglycemia occurs when 80% to 90% of β- cells are destroyed. Individuals with type 1 DM are often thin and are prone to develop diabetic ketoacidosis if insulin is withheld or under conditions of severe stress.

20 LADA Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults (LADA) is a form of autoimmune (type 1 diabetes) which is diagnosed in individuals who are older than the usual age of onset of type 1 diabetes ( > 25 year ) . Often, patients with LADA are mistakenly thought to have type 2 diabetes, based on their age at the time of diagnosis

21 MODY caused by mutations in a number of different genes defects of insulin secretion. Occur in late childhood, adolescence, or early adulthood. diagnosis of MODY is based on presence of : - non-ketotic hyperglycemia in conjunction with a family history of diabetes. -

22 DM accounts for as many as 90% of DM cases This is the most common form of diabetes mellitus and is highly associated with a family history of diabetes, older age, obesity and lack of exercise, history of gestational diabetes, impaired glucose metabolism. It usually begins as insulin resistance, where the cells do not use insulin properly. As the need for insulin rises, the pancreas gradually loses its ability to produce insulin.


24 Form of glucose intolerance diagnosed
in pregnant women. occurs more frequently among African Americans, obese women and women with a family history of diabetes. requires treatment >>> normalize maternal blood glucose levels to avoid complications in the fetus. Women who had GDM have a 20% to 50% chance of developing diabetes

25 Other specific types of DM
Uncommon causes of diabetes (1% to 2% of cases) include: - Endocrine disorders (e.g. acromegaly, Cushing’s (syndrome - Exocrine pancreas (e.g. pancreatitis) - medications (e.g. glucocorticoids, pentamidine, niacin, and α- interferon).

26 Diagnosis Investigation


28 Urine test: Detect glucose Detect proteinuria For ketone determination
- For Pregnant diabetic woman to check adequate nutrition and glycemic control

29 Pre- diabetic It’s a state of abnormal glucose homeostasis characterized by the presence of impaired FPG, GTT , or both. It is often described as the “gray area” between normal blood sugar and diabetic levels

30 Diagnosed by: 1) signs or symptoms: 2) lab investigation
- Constant hunger FPG mg/dl - Blurred vision hPG mg/dl - weakness HbA1c % - Unexplained weight loss.

31 important clinically because:
When lifestyle changes such as - eating healthy foods - physical activity in daily routine - maintaining a healthy weight may be able to bring your blood sugar level back to normal and prevent development DM 2 .

32 important lab investigation for a patient who is presenting with DM as follow up : HbA1c at least twice a year in patients meeting treatment goals on a stable therapeutic regimen.

33 Screening for DM Screening for type 2 DM should be performed every 3 years beginning at the age of 45. But considered at an earlier age and more frequently in individuals with risk factors . Pregnant women should be assessed for GDM at their first prenatal visit and proceed with glucose testing if at high risk.

34 The recommended screening test is : fasting plasma glucose (FPG) Normal FPG is less than 100 mg/dL Or less than (5.6 mmol/L).

35 Treatment

36 Initial Treatment Advice on diet and exercise recommendations for people with diabetes. Check for risk factor : stop smoking. blood pressure control. cholesterol-lowering.

37 Type 1 Regular insulin given subcutaneously, requiring injection 30 minutes prior to meals. Lispro, aspart, and glulisine insulins have shorter durations of action than regular insulin, injection 10 minutes prior to meals.

38 Neutral protamine hagedorn (NPH) is intermediate-acting
Neutral protamine hagedorn (NPH) is intermediate-acting. contribute to a labile glucose response, nocturnal hypoglycemia, and fasting hyperglycemia. Glargine and Detemir are long-acting “peakless” human insulin analogs that result in less nocturnal hypoglycemia than NPH insulin when given at bedtime


40 Type 2 Symptomatic patients may initially require insulin or combination oral therapy to reduce glucose toxicity (which may reduce β-cell insulin secretion and worsen insulin resistance).

41 Sulfonylureas : stimulating insulin secretion
Sulfonylureas : stimulating insulin secretion . Meglitinides : stimulating insulin secretion in presence of glucose. Biguanides (metformin) : enhances insulin sensitivity of both hepatic and peripheral (muscle) tissues. Thiazolidinediones (Glitazones) : enhance insulin sensitivity in muscle, liver, and fat tissues indirectly. Insulin must be present in significant quantities for these actions to occur. Insulin for patient who doesn't maintain good control of blood sugar with drugs.


43 Life style modification
studies included people with IGT and other high-risk characteristics for developing diabetes. They found that lifestyle changes can prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes among high-risk adults. In the Diabetes Prevention Program, a large prevention study of people at high risk for diabetes, the development of diabetes was reduced 58% over 3 years .


45 Complication & How to prevent it
The major organs and body systems involved in diabetes complications are the: eyes kidneys nerves heart and blood vessels gums

46 Eye Problems: To prevent : Cataracts, Retinopathy, glucoma
Keep blood pressure and blood sugar levels in check . make sure the eyes are examined on the schedule prescribed by the doctor

47 Kidney Disease (Diabetic Nephropathy)
High blood sugar can damage the blood vessels in the kidneys. To prevent maintain good blood sugar control by following the diabetes treatment plan. regular blood pressure and urine albumin tests checks up.

48 Nerve Damage (Diabetic Neuropathy)
can involve nerves in many different parts of the body. The most common early symptoms are numbness, tingling, or sharp pains in the feet or lower legs. To prevent controlling blood sugar levels with diet, exercise, and diabetes medications will help reduce risk.

49 Heart and Blood Vessel Diseases
heart attack ,stroke and blockage of blood vessels in the legs and feet, which can lead to foot ulcers. To prevent maintain a healthy weight. check blood lipid and blood pressure regularly to be sure they're in a healthy range.
