Ensure Fasting Patients With Diabetes Have Diabetic Testing Supplies
Patients will ask how to manage diabetes medications during fasting...for lab work, medical procedures, religious reasons, etc.
Patients with diabetes need to be especially careful when they go without food. That's because blood sugar can drop too low...or spike too high without diabetes meds.
Refer questions about fasting and diabetes to your pharmacist. They'll recommend a plan to help patients stay safe during fasting.
