Case 3

A 48-year-old type I diabetic lady presents with a 6-hour history of vague upper abdominal pain associated with nausea. Observations are within normal limits; however, she looks unwell, pale, and clammy. Her abdomen is soft.

You organise some baseline investigations including laboratory bloods (FBC, UEs, LFTs, CRP, calcium, amylase) and a urine dipstick.
