Emergency Preparedness & Diabetes | CDC, ADA, & DDRC Advisement

Taking care of ourselves, our families and our patients are our first priorities at this time.

It is very quiet in most neighborhoods this morning; no commuter cars on the streets, no school bus noises, no sounds of children playing. This desolate environment reminds us that there is a lot of unknown for all of us.

It is so important right now to make sure we are all prepared for social distancing and flattening the curve of the spread of this pathogen.

We want to offer a few resources for those living with diabetes to prepare for what’s ahead and how to manage stress during this time. Endocrinologists are urging people that use insulin to plan ahead and have extra supplies on hand.
