DIABETES TYPE 2.

A). Briefly define the disease. For instance, “Chick pox is a contagious viral disease most commonly seen in childhood that results in a generalized raised, red, maculopapular rash accompanied by intense itching, known as pruritis.” Be sure to use and define any medical terminology. Only use one or two sentences. Cite all sources in the text, even if the material is paraphrased. B). State the morbidity and mortality of the disease (how many people get it – either % of the population or the number per 100,000 each year.) Cite your sources. If the statistics are from another country, specify which country. C). Identify the etiology of the disease. If there is no specific etiology, explain some of the theories that scientists currently believe about the disease. D). Identify any risk factors for the disease. Be sure to put these in paragraph form – I will take off for lists! Be very specific: say what age, what gender, etc. For instance, say “African-American males over aged 65” rather than race, gender, and age. E). Explain the pathophysiology of the disease. Be sure to explain what is happening on the cellular level and link it to the signs and symptoms.. This should be the largest portion of the paper. I am looking for terms and concepts used class. F). Identify and define the signs and symptoms of the disease. Be sure to use the correct medical terminology for the signs and symptoms, and explain them. I am looking for how the pathophysiology causes the signs and symptoms. G). Identify and describe the diagnostic tests used and the abnormal findings that would confirm the diagnosis of the disease. Again, be specific. Give normal and diagnostic values for lab tests, abnormal scan findings, etc. H). Describe the standard treatments used for this disease. Tell me what meds are used and what they do. Briefly describe surgeries and treatments. I). Describe the complications and sequellae that may arise from the disease. Use appropriate medical terminology and define any terms.
