52 year old male patient comes to your office to establish care after moving to the area recently. He is a diabetic on an oral hypoglycemic as well as insulin but has no records with him except labs that are a year old. He heard you were a primary care doctor who had a special interest in diabetes so decided to come see you. His last HgbA1c was 7.6. His BMI is 36, his mom and dad both had diabetes, and he thinks he has a history of renal cysts. As far as he can recall he has been a diabetic for almost 30 years and was first diagnosed around the age of 24.
