o Differential diagnosis

· Orthostatic hypotension: This condition is precipitated by suddenly standing up after a long period of sitting or lying down. Other causes include medications that affect blood pressure, history of Parkinson’s disease, diabetes or Shy- Drager syndrome (Ricci, De Caterina & Fedorowski, 2015). In addition, patient taking alpha blockers such as Tamsulosin are at increased risk for orthostatic hypotension (Ricci, De Caterina & Fedorowski, 2015).

· Hypoglycemia: This condition is the result of blood sugar levels less than 60 mg/dl. Hypoglycemia can be caused by many factors including high levels of insulin in the body, presence of a sulfonylurea, growth hormone deficiencies, extraneous exercise, and lack of adequate nutrition, prolonged fasting, and others (Lin, 2016). It’s characterized by weakness, dizziness, cold skin, diaphoresis, faintness, nausea and drowsiness (Lin, 2016).

· Final diagnosis: Hypoglycemia


· Administer Glucagon 1mg IM

· Accu Checks q 15 minutes until blood sugar is over 80 mg/dl

· Decrease Metformin to 250 mg 1 tablet BID by mouth

· Order HbA1C to assess blood glucose control over a longer period of time (Lin, 2016).

· Follow up in 1 week for lab results

· Educate patient to recognize signs and symptoms of hypoglycemia.

· Educate patient to always carry snacks or life savers candies with her.

· Educate patient to eat small but frequent meals throughout the day. Never go more than 3 hours without eating.
