Sick Day Workshop
December 6, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
There are many things to consider when developing a sick day plan. Any illness or injury, from the simplest of colds to the flu or a sprained ankle can have an impact on blood sugars.
Certified Diabetes Educator Julie Dewsnup, RPh will join us for our evening meeting this month to go over sick day protocol. Julie will offer guidelines on how to manage checking blood sugars and ketones (blood vs urine), temporary basal settings, and suggestions and hints for how to take a little of the guess work out of those nasty sick days.
Julie and Kifaia are opening a pharmacy/diabetes clinic in Eugene. They will offer pharmacy services along with diabetes education, medication therapy management, pump starts, and collaborative practice agreements with your physician. The Diabetes Community Care Team is here to be another resource for people living with diabetes.
