Abdominal pain, masquerading as an acute abdomen, is frequently present. In HONK, patients are severely dehydrated and glucose levels are always very high. The prognosis in HONK is poor as a result of the concomitant illnesses (coronary heart disease, renal disease, cardiovascular disease) seen in this usually elderly cohort. 13 – A 77-year-old man who is drowsy and dehydrated with a plasma glucose of 84 mmol/L. A1: What is the likely diagnosis? The likely diagnosis is hyperosmolar non-ketotic coma, which usually affects older people with type 2 diabetes and can be the presenting feature (as in this case).

Insulin thus becomes a leading option, especially given the patient’s young age and the development of diabetic retinopathy. Clearly the patient is not keen to go on insulin and the reasons for this need to be explored, because many patients are pleasantly surprised at how painless insulin injections are (compared with HBGM) and feel much better when their glycaemic control improves. A dietary assessment is reasonable because weight gain is highly likely with insulin; for this reason, metformin should be continued (while the sulphonylurea may be withheld).

The outcome of a large trial (called ASCEND) assessing the use of aspirin in ‘low-risk’ type 2 diabetes is awaited. ’ Hypertension is commonly associated with type 2 diabetes but is difficult to treat to target. This difficulty is made worse by the lowering of target levels, based on results of large clinical trials. In the UKPDS, blood pressure targets were less stringent than those that are now advocated for routine primary care (140/80 mmHg in type 2 diabetes); nevertheless, more than one-third of patients required three or more antihypertensive drugs.
