Bitter Pills: A New Interactive Medical Case

Posted by Karen Buckley • October 14th, 2010

Test your diagnostic and therapeutic skills with our latest Interactive Medical Case,
Bitter Pills.

A 60-year-old man presented to an urgent care clinic with fatigue, which began a month earlier, and increasing frequency of urination, increasing nighttime urination, and increasing thirst, all of which began during the past week. He had previously been told that he had “prediabetes” and was concerned that his symptoms reflected progression to diabetes mellitus. . . .

You are guided through this patient’s clinical developments, and presented with detailed video and graphics from both lab and radiologic tests. Once a choice is made, you are provided with immediate feedback on your decision. Later, you may read the full Clinical Problem Solving report.
