Precautions for Diabetics Before Undergoing MRI

What is an MRI?

An MRI is a big machine that doctors use to look inside your body without surgery.

Diabetes Check

If you have diabetes, your body uses insulin differently, which is important to remember before an MRI.

Talk to Your Doctor

Always tell your doctor you have diabetes before your MRI appointment.

Meal Planning

Eat your regular meal before the MRI but follow any special instructions your doctor may give.

Take your diabetes medicine as usual unless your doctor tells you otherwise.

Medication Reminder

Before going for your MRI, check your blood sugar to make sure it's okay.

Check Your Sugar

Bring Snacks

Have a small snack with you in case your MRI is delayed and you need to eat.

Stay Calm

MRI scans are safe and don't hurt. Staying calm helps the scan go smoothly.

Check your sugar levels again after the MRI, just to be safe.
