I have been working on a diabetes reference sheet for over a week now…what started out as a simple exercise became more and more complicated. But that’s kind of how diabetes is. People get their diagnosis and often think it’s ‘no big deal,’ that they can ignore it or check their blood sugar only sporadically. And then WHAM….they stop being able to speak correctly and end up in the hospital on dialysis. No bueno.
So what started out as a simple 1-page reference sheet on DM, became a 3 page summary of diabetes, DKA and HHS. Enjoy and be safe out there!
