There really is not enough research information to state specific problems related to COVID 19 and diabetes. As with any diabetic, getting an illness can potentially place you at risk for more serious complications. Protecting yourself from illness through healthy lifestyle and food choices can help lower your chances of contracting any virus and reduce your risk of serious complications.
SIGNS & SYMPTOMS OF COVID 19
EMERGENCY SIGNS & SYMPTOMS (Seek medical attention immediately)
BEFORE YOU CALL YOUR DOCTOR make sure you have as much specific information as you can about your symptoms. For example, have your blood sugar reading available and be clear about whether you are nauseated or vomiting or both.
Some precautionary measures to reduce your risk of contracting COVID 19 is to wear a mask when you leave your home, practice social distancing, and continue frequent hand washing.
The process of a vaccination is to help your body stimulate your immune system to protect you against an infection or disease. It does not guarantee that you will not contract that disease but hoping that you develop protection from getting the disease. An example of a vaccine would be the flu or COVID shot. Even though you received the shot it has not stopped vaccinated individuals from contracting the disease.
The process of an immunization is to make you immune from catching a specific infection or disease. That means when you get immunized you are not going to catch the infection or develop the disease. An example of an immunization is the measles, mumps, and rubella shot or polio shot. Those diseases are rarely seen now days.
