patient diagnosis: Diarrhea due to Cryptosporidium lab result shows: low K, Na, Ca,…

past history: essential hypertension, colon polyps, hyperlipidemia, obesity with BMI: 30.39.

Does any of the past history correlate with the current diagnoses? ( list all, if any)explain how? what body system will be your top priority to assess due to the patient’s diagnoses? what complications may occur with these diagnoses?

ANS from Chegg tutor:  the topmost priority will be for the GI system followed by electrolyte management. Complications of the present condition would be hypovolemic shock and renal or cardiac failure.

My question now:

why is the GI system a priority? what will you assess for? Can you explain in detail each complication you have listed? what makes it an issue? Does any of the past medical history correlate to the primary diagnosis? if any, then explain how.

overall, can my initial questions be answered in detail? thanks.
