Patients with diabetes are more vulnerable to acute illness leading to hospitalisation, and those with pre-established renal disease are especially at risk of acute chronic kidney injury (AKI). ENHIDE developed a pocket-sized sick day guidance card to fit in wallets and purses for all patients with diabetes, and over 50,000 cards have been made available for patient use, with priority given to those patients admitted acutely with AKI, with the aim of reducing avoidable hospitalisation.
