I have had type 1DM for 30 years, I have a good managment with my blood glucose levels. I workout and eat healthy. I make sure to check my blood sugar before I go in and get report, because it can be a good 4-6hours before I get a chance to sit down. I always keep protein bars, snacks and some juice on me. I tend not to have many issues. The only time I tend to have issues are when a pt crashes and I have to start doing cpr, suctioning, or handle some kind of crisis I tend to bottom out shortly after so I eat a protein bar to prevent the low. Many nurses are diabetics, if you have the desire to be a nurse go for it, dont let your diabetes hold you back.
