Diabetes Mellitus Pharmacology Medications | NCLEX Nursing Lecture on Management Made Easy

Diabetes mellitus NCLEX pharmacology medication review of the nursing care management for the diabetic patient. This will include the diabetic diet (carbs, fats, proteins), exercise regime (how to monitor glucose prior to exercise, types of exercises for the diabetic), and pharmacological management (oral medications for type 2 diabetes, insulin therapy for type 1 diabetes, and medications that cause hyperglycemia/hypoglycemia). In addition, I will cover the NCLEX highlights for oral medications, such as Sulfonylureas, Meglitinides, Biguanides, Alpha-glucoside inhibitors, and Thiazolidinedione, Insulin mnemonics for short-acting, rapid-acting, intermediate-acting, and long-acting insulin (which will include onset, peak, and duration times with a clever mnemonic). Don’t forget to watch PART 1 of this series on the patho, causes, types, complications, and nursing assessment of diabetes.

NOTE: At 12:43, I discuss the injection sites for insulin. The sites are the fat of the abdomen, back of the arms, and thighs (as written on the board) NOT the armpits (I said armpits for some crazy reason and did NOT mean to say this…I meant to say arms).
