Diabetes UK

Diabetes UK has issued comprehensive

guidance around the Covid-19 vaccines

and what it means for people with

diabetes. People with diabetes are

vulnerable to developing a severe illness if

they contract coronavirus, and the vaccine

is the most effective way to prevent this.

Most people with diabetes are in priority

group six - people aged 16 to 64 years

with underlying health conditions. Side

effects from the vaccine are usually

mild, including soreness at the injection

site, feeling tired and a headache, and

shouldn't last longer than 48 hours. The

vaccine may also lead to higher blood

glucose levels for a short time. To read

Rising rates?

There is growing evidence to suggest that

coronavirus might be triggering diabetes

in some people or making the condition

worse for others. Faye Riley PhD, Diabetes

UK's Senior Research Communications

Officer takes a look at the research so far

and explain what scientists are doing to

find answers. To read the full story, CLICK

Covid-19 & Priority Group Six

As this issue of the magazine goes live, the UK has moved to

vaccinating persons in Priority Group Six. This group covers

those over 60 years of age and anyone considered to be at

risk, including everyone with any form of diabetes. This is a

round-up of news and support resources.

NHS

The NHS explains how it identified people

as being potentially at high risk (clinically

extremely vulnerable) by working with

the University of Oxford to identify the

pieces of information about people

and their health that are needed by the

risk assessment model to generate

as accurate risk assessment results

as possible. "We identified where this

information could be found in existing

datasets held by NHS Digital," as stated

on the NHS website, "We then gathered

the specific pieces of information from the

records of people who could potentially be

considered high risk (clinically extremely

vulnerable). As the national information

and technology partner to the health and

social care system in England, we have

legal permission to securely collect and

analyse this data." Read more HERE.

Join Zoe

Covid Symptom Study is collecting

information on people's symptoms after

having the Pfiezer/BioNTech COVID19

vaccine. So far, more than 275,000

people have logged their vaccinations in

the app. Read about these findings and
