Coronavirus: specific advice for people living with diabetes
The risk of getting Coronavirus is now high in the UK, so if you have diabetes and start to feel unwell you need to follow the sick day rules for type 1 or type 2 diabetes and check your blood glucose frequently. Also follow sick day advice recommended by your local diabetes educators.
