Diabetes mellitus (DM) occurs when the body either produces insufficient amounts of insulin (type 1 diabetes), or the body build resistance to insulin due to overuse (type 2 diabetes). In this NCLEX review, Mike Linares RN reviews insulin types, memory tricks on how to remember insulin peak times, onset, and duration of:
Rapid acting insulin: Lispro, Aspart, Glulisine (brand names: Humalog, Novolog, Apidra)
Short acting insulin: Regular Insulin (Humulin, Acrapid, Novolin)
Intermediate acting insulin: NPH, Lente
Long acting insulin: Glargine insulin, Detemir insulin (brand names: Lantus, Levemir)

The pathophysiology of type 1 diabetes is where the pancreas does not produce insulin, and type two diabetes is where the body develops insulin resistance.

Pharmacology of type one diabetes includes insulin subcutaneous injection and insulin pump, and type two diabetes mellitus includes adherance to diet, oral antidiabetics as well as insulin.

Both could be exacerbated into extreme conditions, DKA (diabetes ketoacidosis) more common in type one diabetes, and HHS or HHNS (hyperglycemic hyperosmolar syndrome).

This 7 part video series on endocrine medical surgical adult health nursing is intended to help registered nurse RN students and LPN students with NCLEX memorization tricks. In this video series Michael Linares, RN from Simple Nursing helps explain the nursing pathophysiology, signs and symptoms, causes, pathology, treatment options for various diagnosis, which are expected to know for the NCLEX, HESI, ATI, and Kaplan proctor exams.
