Annotation: The American Diabetes Association believes correctional institutions should provide adequate treatment for inmates with diabetes.
Abstract: Inmates should receive medications regularly; have meals at times consistent with the treatment schedule; be monitored for hypoglycemia, blood glucose, urine ketones, and glycosylated hemoglobin; receive prompt medical treatment for diabetes complications; participate in exercise; and receive regular followup evaluations. Diabetic patients receiving insulin should not be placed in isolation without frequent observation by guards to detect hypoglycemia. Assistance, including food, juice, or other sugar sources, should be readily available in the event of an insulin reaction. The American Diabetes Association has prepared resource materials to provide guidance to health care professionals and patients in the management of diabetes.
