MMI Scenario 29
A patient attends the pharmacy and is a little confused about his medication. He has started using insulin and does not understand the difference between Novomix and Lantus and why he has been given two types or when to take them. He would also like to know about how he can recognise symptoms of a ‘hypo’ as his friend was taken into hospital after having a ‘hypo’ episode and this is a concern of his. He has been given a new type of glucose monitor but does not seem to know how it works so has not been taking his blood sugar measurements. Explain what points you would cover with the patient.
