Abstract

Occupational health clinicians often collect and/or interpret annual wellness biometrics for workers. It is now known that type 1 diabetes can present in stages including presymptomatic/normal glucose, presymptomatic/impaired glucose, and symptomatic/hyperglycemia. A workplace wellness screening case illustrates the concepts, along with background pathophysiology, recommendations for new staging and first degree relative screening, and implications for occupational health nurses.
