Living with diabetes can be challenging enough on a good day. But, when you're sick, managing diabetes becomes even more difficult.
Illness can cause your blood sugar levels to rise, and lead to a serious complication called diabetic ketoacidosis.
You can prevent this from happening.
To learn how to manage diabetes sick days, read the DRI's brochure "Sick Day Management" in English or "Diabetes y la Enfermedad" in Spanish.
