Glucose Logs

As of July 1, 2015, current diabetes patients requesting a Blood Glucose Log Review are required to do this through their MyChart account. Alternatively, you may schedule a visit with the provider or diabetes educator to review the blood sugars in person.

You can find Instructions for Submitting a Blood Glucose Log here.

If you need to set up a MyChart account, or need help accessing your account, please visit the MyChart homepage or contact 919-350-2288 to speak to a member of the WakeMed MyChart staff.

If you would like to schedule a Bloog Glucose Log Review visit, please contact our office at (919) 350-7584.

Driving & Diabetes

If your child is planning to obtain a driver's permit or license, the North Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (NC DMV) currently requires individuals with any chronic health problem to complete a Medical Report Form (DL-78). This form can also be downloaded online at the NC DMV website, under the "Forms" section. This form requires signatures from both your child's diabetes doctor and primary care doctor.

Be sure to talk to your doctor about safe driving habits with diabetes.

Diabetes Camps

There are several diabetes camps in North & South Carolina. These are great opportunities for children with diabetes (Type 1 and Type 2) to learn more about the disease and meet other children with diabetes.

Sliding Scales

A sliding scale is a "cheat sheet" to help you determine your child's insulin needs when they have a high blood sugar. You can download the more common Sliding Scales below.

Sick Day Information

If you child is sick, make sure you are checking blood sugars and ketones throughout the day, and encourage plenty of fluids. If you child has ketones present, our staff can provide you with assistance by calling our Nurse Line or Emergency Line at 919-350-7584 (available 24-hours a day, 7-days a week).
