The RN is caring for a 30-year-old violinist who makes his living as a touring concert artist. While on a European concert tour, he fainted on stage, was taken to a hospital, and subsequently diagnosed with Type I Diabetes Mellitus. The RN is teaching the patient about self-monitoring of blood glucose, dietary considerations, and insulin injections. The patient tells the RN that he cannot possibly manage this regimen, since he spends a lot of his life “in airplanes and on stages.”
