We are here for you because we know managing diabetes can be even harder when you are dealing with a crisis. During an emergency, it is critical for people with diabetes to have access to the medications and testing supplies needed to maintain proper blood glucose control, and to prevent serious sudden complications such as hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia.
Be Prepared: The Diabetes Preparedness Plan includes checklist of supplies, information and guidelines for people living with diabetes in the case of an emergency or natural disaster.
Be Informed: Visit DDRC’s Facebook page or diabetes.org. Detailed resources can be found here.
