Cover image for lecture: Fasting Considerations for People With Diabetes

Lecture Overview

It seems that more and more patients being admitted these days have a medical history of diabetes - so what happens when these individuals need to have surgery? And what happens when the majority of patients on a theatre list have diabetes? These are some of the important considerations that health professionals must have at front of mind when managing people with diabetes that may have to fast for long periods. What would you do?

It was ok. It focused more on religious fasting as opposed to fasting for surgical procedures. Still lots of good information though.
