Spanish to English translations [PRO] Medical - Medical (general) / medical report
Spanish term or phrase:DM control GHC 21 x MTF 1x1
This is part of the previous history:
DM = I know is diabetes mellitus
GHC = could be growth hormone concentration?
MTF = I have no idea....
Can you help confirm MTF and GHC? Thanks in advance.
I tend to avoid abbreviations for medications. There's just too much potential for misinterpretation.

Muchas gracias, Dr. Faulkner. Would you spell the medications out or leave them with abbreviation in the English version?
Notes to answerer
Asker: I am afraid there is not much puntuation. The line prior to this was: NIEGA ALERGICOS. DH control: GHC (could be GBC) 21x MTF 1x1. HAS control metoprolol 1 x 1. IAM y cirugia cardiaca 1996 6 bay pass control AAS150mg 1x1. Isoosrbide 10 mg 1x2.
By the way, is it usual in English to abbreviate the medications, should I spell them out in English or leave as abbreviations?
