Advice for people with diabetes


For people diagnosed with diabetes, this can be a particularly difficult time. 

In response to this, Diabetes UK have updated their webpages with coronavirus advice and information for people living with diabetes, and for their families. 

They also have some information to help people staying at home and managing diabetes, and to help people cope with stress and other emotions. There is also a useful coronavirus thread on thier online forum, where members are sharing tips and their experiences. 

Their dedicated Ramadan advice which is available on thier website also provides information on safe fasting and diabetes, including a factsheet on religious fasting

A brand new North of England Diabetes UK Facebook support group has also been started, which provides updates from key Health Care Professionals on local services and and important messages on care and support.
