LIVE Expert Panel: Diabetes Management & COVID-19

Diabetes is known to lead to increased risks for infections. Patients with diabetes are more likely to experience severe complications from COVID-19; and those with poorly-controlled blood sugar are at even higher risk of death.

Inaccessibility of health care providers, clinics and hospitals due to the implementation of lockdowns and community quarantines have led to disruptions in the provision of care for patients living with diabetes.

How can healthcare systems adapt to continue provision of care to people with diabetes to help them stay out of hospital? What are some alternative methodologies to enable continued patient access to consultations and essential laboratory tests to monitor diabetes control, screen and treat any complications that arise?
