In the event of a natural disaster, diabetes management can deteriorate both during and after a disaster. Research shows that blood glucose levels can increase following a disaster event. Planning ahead reduces the risk of diabetes-related infections and life-threatening situations.

Helpful resources have been developed by the Disaster Planning and Management National Development Programme and this includes an emergency kit checklist and information on other important items for your diabetes emergency kit.
