How can I stay involved in my diabetes management during a hospital stay?

Before you enter the hospital, talk to your doctor about how your diabetes will be controlled in the hospital and by whom. While in the hospital, participate in your diabetes care by asking the hospital personnel who monitor your blood glucose levels what your readings are and by making sure your meals are designed to accommodate your diabetes control plan. Ask to speak to a hospital dietitian if you have questions about the foods offered.
