He was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes five years ago, which is well controlled on Metformin alone. His surgical and family histories are unremarkable.

He smokes heavily, with a total of 15 pack years to date. He also drinks significantly, having consumed 2 to 3 units of alcohol almost every day for the last 10 years.

A complete blood count, renal profile, electrolyte assay, and random capillary glucose level are all within normal parameters.
