Creating a Disorder-Specific Case Study

For this discussion, you will create a brief case study to share with your peers. It will be related to a specific condition, disease, or disorder that has characteristics of metabolic balance or glucose regulation.

The purpose of this discussion will be to deepen your understanding of your chosen condition, disease, or disorder. It will also provide your peers with a brief case study to consider as the course progresses toward the Unit 3 assignment. This will be useful, as the Unit 3 assignment will ask you to select a specific condition, disease, or disorder that has characteristics of metabolic balance or glucose regulation and create an in-depth concept map for it.

For the case study, address the following. Be sure to follow the requirements for initial postings found in the Faculty Expectations Message (FEM).

Describe the history of present illness.
Explain the patient’s past medical history.
Present relevant diagnostics.
