Updates: Coronavirus and diabetes
There are currently no medicines authorised to treat coronavirus specifically and research is very limited, so it is important that scientists and medical organisations are aware of any side effects from medicines, or problems with equipment, that those being treated for confirmed or suspected coronavirus might be experiencing.
Taking care of yourself is more important than ever and food plays a big role in this. While we’re all staying home a lot more than we used to, it can be difficult to know how to keep up a healthy diet and avoid grazing on unhealthy snacks, especially when you feel anxious or stressed.
