COVID-19 and Diabetes

Update only

Worldwide people with diabetes who are infected with the coronavirus have been shown to be at significantly increase risk of hospitalisation.
Once in hospital they are more likely to require admission to the ICU where their prognosis is poor.

Therefore, the challenge is to protect patients by effectively controlling their glycaemia despite the lockdown and isolation.
 
This programme provides practical advice and guidance on the management of patients including those requiring insulin.
