In the event that your patient with diabetes becomes ill, make sure they know what to do so they can avoid a decline in their health that might land them in hospital. Diabetes Canada’s Sick Day Management Guide is a great resource which also includes medications to temporarily stop.
If your patient has a complex medication regimen or their caregiver has medication questions, they can also receive Sick Day Management education from a LMC CDE Pharmacist to help identify specific medications they
should stop temporarily. This service is available virtually by phone or video through LMC Pharmacy (1-866-701-3636) and is a MOHLTC covered service (no charge to patients).
