Answer

Microvascular complications, such as retinopathy and nephropathy, should be considered as well. Ask the following questions as appropriate:

  • When was the patient’s last dilated eye examination? What were the results?

  • Does the patient have known kidney disease?

  • What were the dates and results of the last measurements of urine protein and serum creatinine levels?
