In this episode, we discuss type 1 diabetes. Diabetes can affect nearly every organ system and is a very commonly tested topic on our certification exams, as well as omnipresent in our patient populations. We talk about diagnosis, pathogenesis, and typical presentations of diabetes. We also discuss anticipatory guidance for patients and families with a new diagnosis of diabetes and what tests are important for the work up of a newly diagnosed diabetic. We talk about recognition and management of DKA.
