*The examples listed in the table above are suggestions; you need to create your own ‘person/client’. # Commonly used drugs for type II diabetes mellitus is metformin. Insulin is used to maintain normal blood glucose levels for diabetic women in pregnancy.
You will then be required to answer a series of specific questions that relate directly to your ‘person/client’ and the condition she or he has.
All of your answers must be specific for this person; marks will not be given where your presentation does not relate to the person you have ‘created’.
• The specific questions are listed below,
• You will need to research your topic; please ensure that you keep a record of any references that you have used.
