Initial Diagnosis

Polyuria, thirst, and weight loss is the classic triad of symptoms of diabetes. Initial diagnosis is usually confirmed by measurement of plasma glucose by one of the following tests:

- A single plasma glucose > 11.1 mmol l_1

- Fasting plasma glucose (FPG) > 7.0 mmol lP

- 2-h plasma glucose (PG) > 11.1 mmol p1 during an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT)

As part of the initial diagnosis, a complete medical evaluation should be performed to overrule any possible complications, and a complete management plan should be formulated.
