TAKING CONTROL OF YOUR DIABETES® - THE PODCAST! ...With Expert Endocrinologists Living with T1D, Drs. Steven V. Edelman & Jeremy Pettus

Whether planned or unexpected, a visit to the hospital can cause added stress when managing diabetes—and it’s important to advocate for yourself to get the right care. Dr. Pettus is sitting down with in-patient hospital management expert, Dr. Tricia Santos, to discuss what people with diabetes need to know when going into the hospital. They’ll cover how medication doses may adjust, the ability to use devices, and how to capitalize on all the extra time spent around doctors!

Questions We’ll Cover in This Episode:
  • How does a hospital initially assess a patient with diabetes when they’re admitted?
  • Can I ask for an endocrinologist to be added to my care team?
  • Do I need to take the same doses of my medications as I do outside of the hospital?
  • What is the goal range for my blood sugar when in the hospital?
  • Can I use technology/devices in the hospital?
  • How can I get the right meal/diet in the hospital?
