I am a diabetic. Should I take my medication on the day of my procedure?

In general, diabetic medication should not be taken on the day of your procedure. There are, however, important medical circumstances in which these medications must not be stopped. If you have any questions about stopping these medications, consult your primary care physician. A finger stick blood sugar will be obtained by the KBEC staff to ensure proper management of your blood sugar during your procedure. When the procedure is over and you have resumed a normal diet, your usual diabetic regimen should be resumed.
