Good article from Joslin Diabetes Center including what to do if you’re feeling sick, organizational resources and what to put together as a diabetes kit, including things like make, model and serial number of your insulin pump or CGM, doctor’s name, phone number and address and more. Worth reading.
This article was just put out by the International Diabetes Federation and it’s a good summation. In truth, there really isn’t a lot you can do other than :
- Do your best to have your blood sugar in range
- Have extra medicine on hand should there be a shortage
As for the general recommendations:
1 Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds frequently and especially after you’ve been outside and before cooking
2. Stay away from crowded places
3. Know the basic symptoms of the virus – typical flu-like symptoms: a fever, cough, breathing difficulties, tiredness and muscle aches.
4. Don’t panic
