Lincolnshire services are available to support people with diabetes
Diabetes Awareness week was held earlier this month. Recent reports show that people living with diabetes face a significantly higher risk of dying with COVID-19 so NHS Lincolnshire is reaching out to those living with the condition or are worried about developing Type 2 diabetes.
People with diabetes are not more likely to contract the virus than those without and those under 40 are still at extremely low risk, whether they have diabetes or not.
However, people living with diabetes - whatever type they have - may want to be more informed on how to best manage their condition, ensure they take their medication as directed, exercise a little and eat well.
