The pathophysiology of diabetes mellitus (DM) is when the body either produces insufficient amounts of insulin (type 1 diabetes), or the body build resistance to insulin due to overuse (type 2 diabetes). The signs and symptoms of hyperglycemia (high sugar) are easily remembered with the 3 P’s: Polydipsia, Polyuria, Polyphagia, and the signs & symptoms of hypoglycemia (low sugar) are simple to memorize with the acronym HIWASH: headache, irritability, weakness, anxiety, shaky, and hunger.

This 7 part video series on endocrine medical surgical adult health nursing is intended to help registered nurse RN students and LPN students with NCLEX memorization tricks. In this video series Michael Linares, RN from Simple Nursing helps explain the nursing pathophysiology, signs and symptoms, causes, pathology, treatment options for various diagnosis, which are expected to know for the NCLEX, HESI, ATI, and Kaplan proctor exams.
