General Sick Day Guidance for Type 1 Diabetes

As COVID-19 concerns rise, Diabetes Ireland remind people with diabetes particularly those on insulin therapy to check they have a stock of ketone test strips and check that they are in date and know how to interpret the result, please see Sick Day Leaflet – Type 1 for more information. This information is a general guide only.Each person should have their own individual Sick Day Regime.


If you don’t have one, or if you feel you need personal advice on your management, contact your own diabetes team today.
