Tips to help people with diabetes avoid dangerous dehydration

The summer heat can be tricky for people with diabetes. If someone you know has diabetes, they’ll want to be aware of when it’s time to call your doctor. Dehydration is when the body loses too much fluid (water) and cannot carry out its normal function. Signs of dehydration can look just like signs of low or high blood sugar.

People with diabetes should drink at least 8 glasses of water a day! Passport members with diabetes can call 1-877-903-0082 to get help and learn how to manage their diabetes.

Passport Offers Care Management for Members

If you know a Passport member who has special health care needs or is disabled, Passport’s Care Management program may be able to help.

Our care managers are health care professionals such as registered nurses, social workers, registered dietitians or respiratory therapists. They can help members understand major health problems and set up care with providers. A care manager will work with members and their provider to help get the care they need.

Please tell any members you know who might benefit to call our Care Connectors team at 1-877-903-0082.
