This week, we are talking about diabetes and management of diabetic symptoms during the summer months. As always, you want to check your blood sugars regularly. You always want to stay hydrated and try to avoid sugary beverages. With excessive sweating, you want to be sure to keep your feet cool and dry. In addition, make sure you take good care of your medications, keeping your insulin in a cooler. With that being said, if you are experiencing any uncontrollable blood sugars and symptoms of high or even low blood sugars, please visit us at CentraCareKC.com.
