Medication management on sick days can be confusing and become more challenging during a battle with C. diff.. Appetites fall short on sick days while fevers dehydrate, weakness and fatigue sets in. Lack of food/fluids is a real problem. Patients need to try to drink 8 ounces of fluids every hour while awake to maintain hydration. Diabetic patients stand to be at a higher risk of dehydration and hypoglycemic events without maintaining adequate nutritional food/fluid intake while experiencing fever, vomiting, diarrhea episodes.. Please speak to Physicians; Gastroenterologists, Endocrinologists, and/or Registered Dietitians for Sick Day Medication & Meal Planning . An ounce of prevention and staying safe is priority.
