Covid-19 and Diabetes

People with diabetes, both Type 1 and Type 2, are at a slightly higher risk of contracting Covid-19 when exposed, but more importantly, at higher risk of becoming sick and having the worst outcome when infected. Well-managed glucose levels reduce these risks over time. When diabetes is not well managed, immune responses get impaired, and chronic inflammation exists.
