As you've learned, the different types of diabetes make it difficult for a person to control the level of sugar in his or her blood. Diabetes is becoming increasingly common and there's a good chance you work with someone who has it, or may even have it yourself. It's important to know the symptoms a person with diabetes experiences when they have low blood sugar and when they have high blood sugar. It's also important to know proper first aid for both conditions. When people tell co-workers about their diabetes, it increases the chances that co-workers will be prepared to give proper first aid when necessary. Finally, it's important to know about medic alert devices, and about items people with diabetes often carry, including insulin and glucagon injection kits, blood sugar monitors and glucose tablets, including why and how they're used.
