Depending upon when the day 23 BG was taken in relation to insulin the diabetic control doesn’t seem very good yet. No obvious causes of hormonal antagonism/infection/inflammation based on bloods and exam.
The collapsing episodes seem to predate the signs of DM developing, would maybe do Holter to confidently rule out an arrhythmia.
We don’t have the luxury of a blood gas machine so I am hopeless at interpreting those results, will leave that to someone more clever than me!
