When should I call my doctor or diabetes nurse?

Call your health care team if you experience any of the following:

1.  Hypoglycemia (low blood glucose under 3.9 mmol/L) that:

    • is severe
    • occurs often
    • occurs at the same time everyday.

If hypoglycemia occurs, be sure to follow the hypoglycemia treatment protocol.

2. Hyperglycemia (high blood glucose over 15.9 mmol/L) that:

    • is accompanied by nausea or vomiting or ketones
    • occurs often or at the same time everyday
    • whenever you need assistance in getting your blood sugars to target.

 
3. Whenever your sugars are not in goal range or you have questions about your diabetes.
