    We had a meeting with several physicians this morning to audit some of their notes. One in particular stood out because we had a split decision in the room. I would like to get other opinions on this history.

    DM-BS in AM 98-138. Fasting 110. 170's with meals.
    Having lows before lunch 50-68
    6/09 optho appt +ASA -Urine mirco
    HgbA1c 7.2 Filament exam -3/10 LDL 129

    There are 2 other chronic conditions and one clear ROS. The question is in the DM info would you give credit for ROS of endocrine based on the above info.

    Thanks

    I would. A review of the patient's blood sugars as they relate to meals and time of day seems an appropriate review of the endocrine system to me.
