‘Think Kidneys’ releases a position statement on Sick Day Rules

Sick Day Rules

The original Sick Day Rules

‘Think Kidneys’ has released a position statement on what were originally called ‘Sick Day Rules’ but more accurately be described as ‘Sick Day Guidance’.  The statement includes some inportant considerations for patients such as:

“Patients may over-interpret the advice and stop their drug treatment during even minor illnesses.”

“Patients may not re-start their drug treatment on recovery.”

“Diabetes control may be adversely affected by inappropriate cessation of glucose lowering treatment.”
