No greater risk, if well managed!
01. April 2020
In these days where COVID-19 fills the headlines, people with chronic diseases, such as T1D, have to be particularly careful to follow the guidance from the health authorities. However, if your T1D is well regulated, your risk of being infected by the coronavirus is almost the same as for the general population. So, as a parent to a young man with T1D, we have agreed that he will indeed follow the guidelines, and add in an extra safety margin. Like staying more at home than most of his friends, study and work solely from home, he postponed all appointments and meetings and he is monitoring his health very carefully.
