weak, queasy, and disoriented. This is similar to episodes that he's had in the past when he's had low blood sugar.

He reports that over the past few days he has noted increased leg swelling, facial puffiness, and increased SOB. He has noted some PND and orthopnea. He has had some vague chest discomfort this morning, left anterior chest, which is now resolved. Otherwise, he reports that he's been doing reasonably well without episodes of hypoglycemia. He's not been experiencing chest pain. He generally eats no added salt diet. He's been taking his medications as prescribed, however, his wife questions this at times.
