Diabetes Awareness and the effects of the Covid-19 Vaccine

If you have diabetes – regardless of what type you have – you are no more likely to catch coronavirus than anyone else. And the majority of people who do get coronavirus – whether they have diabetes or not – will have mild symptoms and don’t need to go into hospital.

However everyone with diabetes, including those with type 1, type 2, gestational and other types, is more vulnerable to developing a severe illness if they do get coronavirus, but the way it affects you can vary from person to person. In children, the risk of becoming seriously ill with coronavirus is very low.

You can find out more information about Diabetes and Coronavirus at Diabetes UK.

Wayne recently spoke to Tracey about the different types of Diabetes, the signs and symptoms when developing Diabetes and the affects of the Covid-19 Vaccine.
