Abstract
When you are sick and have diabetes, your body can make hormones that break down fat for energy. This can make ketones. Ketones raise the acid levels in your blood. This can cause you to get very sick with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA). Usually when you have ketones, your blood glucose is high. You may also have ketones when your blood glucose is not high. DKA can happen in a person with diabetes who is sick or does not take enough insulin. It is important to check both your glucose and your ketones when you are sick. If you catch DKA early, you may be able to treat it successfully at home. DKA can become severe (very bad) or even life-threatening. If this happens, go to the Emergency Department right away. This pamphlet gives tips on how to check for ketones, what to do if you are sick, getting enough fluids, and preventing hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). Insulin adjustment guidelines for sick days, and when to go to the nearest Emergency Department are included.

Abstract
Diagnostic imaging tests take pictures of the inside of your body. These tests include X-rays, computed tomography (CT) scans, nuclear medicine scans, ultrasounds, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Topics include: why you may need to have a test, whether you can have a different test that does not use radiation, how much radiation is safe during pregnancy, who will do your test, asking questions, what to do if you refuse to have the test, and what to do if you find out you are pregnant after a test.

Your eyes are filled with a fluid made by the ciliary body. This fluid flows through the pupil, in front of the lens, and then out through a drain called the trabecular meshwork. Glaucoma is a disease where increased pressure in the eye damages the optic nerve. It usually happens when the trabecular meshwork (drain) does not work and fluid cannot drain from the eye. Fluid buildup in the front part of the eye increases pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve. This damage may at first caus…

Abstract
Your eyes are filled with a fluid made by the ciliary body. This fluid flows through the pupil, in front of the lens, and then out through a drain called the trabecular meshwork. Glaucoma is a disease where increased pressure in the eye damages the optic nerve. It usually happens when the trabecular meshwork (drain) does not work and fluid cannot drain from the eye. Fluid buildup in the front part of the eye increases pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve. This damage may at first cause loss of side vision. If left untreated, it may cause loss of central vision. Acute and chronic glaucoma are defined. The various tests used to diagnose glaucoma are described. Treatment can be medication, laser, or surgery. We have also provided instructions on how to use eye drops. The French version of this pamphlet 1910, "Gestion du glaucome", is also available.

Abstract
Your eyes are filled with a fluid made by the ciliary body. This fluid flows through the pupil, in front of the lens, and then out through a drain called the trabecular meshwork. Glaucoma is a disease where increased pressure in the eye damages the optic nerve. It usually happens when the trabecular meshwork (drain) does not work and fluid cannot drain from the eye. Fluid buildup in the front part of the eye increases pressure in your eye, damaging the optic nerve. This damage may at first cause loss of side vision. If left untreated, it may cause loss of central vision. SLT is used to treat chronic open angle glaucoma by helping to control the pressure inside your eye. A laser (highly focused beam of light) is focused on the drains to help the fluid move more freely. The pamphlet describes getting ready for treatment, how the treatment is done, care after laser treatment, and possible risks. The French version of this pamphlet 1912, "Trabéculoplastie sélective au laser (TSL) pour le glaucome", is also available.
