During this lecture we'll discuss how to screen and diagnose at-risk patients in the transplant setting. We will then discuss insulin management for patients while inpatient, including weight-based insulin dosing, transitioning off insulin drips, and adjusting an insulin regimen. Finally we will conclude by discussing the outpatient management of diabetes including patient education tips and tricks, the use of oral diabetic agents, non-insulin injectables, and insulin while at home.
