Managing sick days for type 2 diabetes

When you have type 2 diabetes, everyday illnesses or infection can affect your blood glucose levels.


It’s important to be prepared before you get sick – have a personalised sick day action plan and sick day management kit ready to use at the earliest sign of illness.

Discuss putting together your sick day action plan and kit with your diabetes team.
