Diabetes and Hospitalization

If you are going into the hospital, you can expect changes in your glucose readings and changes to your diabetic medications while you are in the hospital.

What Can I Expect?

Stress and certain medications will alter your glucose. Changes you may experience in diet while in the hospital will also alter your glucose.

You can expect to receive insulin injections while hospitalized since this is the expert’s recommendation to manage your diabetes while ill or having surgery.

As long as you had good diabetes control at home, you will most likely resume the same routine when you are discharged.

    In a medical emergency, call 911.
