Reviewing the laboratory results (attachment removed to protect patient identity), the patient has already developed significant damage, creatinine is too high and has already secondary hyperparathyroidism. Type 2 diabetes with renal complication. Dialysis is unavoidable, at this stage. To control diabetes and further renal damage, must avoid Metformin and must avoid a high dose of DD-4 or extended release Sulfonylurea.
