My exams are next week and I’m wondering if there are any special precautions I should take in preparation. Here’s what I’ve got planned to do.
I have T2 and I take oral medication so I probably won’t go into a hypo, but I am bringing some fast acting carbs and my meter into the exam hall just in case. I can bring candy and small snacks in without a problem and my professors know I have diabetes so the meter gets clearance.
I will definitely check my blood sugar just about an hour before going in and have a snack if my blood sugar’s on the lower end of normal. If I have a stress-induced high, it’s usually temporary and resolves itself over time. And anyway I can’t bolus for highs.
I just wanted to hear your opinions on this and find out what you to do to manage your diabetes during exam period.
