Sick Day Rules and Physical Activity
The purpose of this class is to provide information to patients with type 1 diabetes that will help them to learn appropriate sick day rules and physical activity dose adjustments. Specifically, the class will address why it is important to know what to do on sick day and what to have on hand. It will also address what patients should know about physical activity and what to do before, during and after an exercise session. Patients’ understanding of the knowledge will translate into specific skills. Patients will be frequently assessed to determine their comprehension of knowledge and acquisition of skills.
