Quiz – Diabetes Screening and Diagnosis

I am preparing for the CDE exam in May. I thought if anyone else was writing they may want to do have some questions to test their knowledge. Here is my first quiz of 5 questions. I thought I would see if there is any interest. If so, I will publish more. The first set is on diabetes diagnosis and screening.


1. JL is in to see you today.  She is 38 years, of Hispanic descent and her mother has type 2 diabetes.  She is generally very active and has no other medical conditions. Her current BMI is 27 kg/m2 and her blood pressure is 135/82 mmHg.  When should JL be screened for type 2 diabetes?
