The patient states he was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder 13 years ago and has been on Escitalopram ever since. He denies any depressive symptoms but does have panic attacks on occasion which can be exacerbated by conflict with his family. The patient states he has no chest pain, shortness of breath or headaches but has been increasingly thirstier and urinating more frequently due to diuretic use. He denies any swelling/edema at this time. Mr. Patel admits to following an unhealthy diet including fast food, fried foods, and sugar. He also denies adding any extra salt to his food but does state his food is generally "very salty" most likely due to cultural dietary preferences. The patient states he has gained approximately 15lbs. since last visit and does not exercise due to time constraints and lack of motivation. The girlfriend is a good support system and he states he breaths slow when he becomes anxious and/or has panic attacks. Denies any substance use.

Mr. Patel is currently maxed out on Metformin at 2550mg a day showing no appropriate blood glucose control.
