My Diabetes My Way: December 2022 Update
Welcome to the My Diabetes My Way Newsletter for December 2022.
Preparing for the Festive Period
Prepare for the festive break and plan to manage your health. During the holidays keep yourself safe by being prepared:
• If you are taking medication, make sure you have enough supplies to last over the holiday period
• If you are blood glucose or blood ketone monitoring, make sure you have enough test strips and lancets
• The accuracy of blood glucose meters and test strips can be affected by the cold. Avoid leaving in cars or unheated rooms. Store at room temperature
• If you haven’t already, speak to your diabetes team about sick day rules in advance
• Keep well hydrated
• Seek advice from NHS 24 if your condition deteriorates or worsens despite following your sick day rules
• And most importantly, enjoy your festive break while staying safe
