Stay or Go? Here’s How to Know
The recent quarantines may have you wondering if you should put off preventive screenings and other tests you may be due for now. While some routine appointments can safely be delayed for the time being, check with your doctor about when—and how—you should get the tests and other care important to keeping your diabetes in check. Your doctor may decide, for example, that it’s important for you to go to the lab to have your A1c checked and may schedule you for a follow-up “virtual care” visit by telephone or computer to review your results.
