Thanks for asking dLife.

Surgery or any major event can influence blood glucose control. During recovery, you may need additional diabetes medicines to bring blood glucose to a safer range. You may also need to check your blood glucose more frequently to determine when and how much adjustments to medicines are required.

Talk with your doctor or diabetes educator about your concerns. He or she can review and modify your diabetes treatment plan while you are undergoing recovery.

Take care.
