Important resources along with some

newly available offers to assist those

living with diabetes through lockdown.


Staying safe & well in lockdown


lease see the link at the

end for our web page

that includes information

from the NHS, Diabetes

UK, JDRF as well as

the International Diabetes Federation,

including a video from its head, Professor

Andrew Boulton.

We've already talked about having

a 'sick day rules' document to use if

necessary. There are several resources

you can use online, of which there are

links in this article as well as links to

various forums. Also, a group of specialist

diabetes HCPs have come together on

Twitter to provide support for people living

with diabetes during the Covid-19 crisis.

Professor Rose Stewart has put together

some simple reference pages which

Originally published on T1Resources.

An online educational resource - BD and

Me - has been made free-to-access by

anyone who wants to learn about that

diabetes basic, injecting. There's a range

of topics covered (who knew there could

be so many?). So, from delivering insulin

to the right place, to using the right

needle, as well as how different insulins

work in your body are all explored, as

well as how to store it and how to care

for injecting sites. Then trouble-shooting

- why bruising? Why pain? Plus dealing

with the unexpected. As a means of

education, you can track your progress in

completing the modules.

resource for free, CLICK HERE.

Keeping busy at home

See our run down of things to do, if you

can find the time! Who'd have thought

filling time in lockdown would be so easy?

If you do have some free, then maybe

learn to cook. Or see an art exhibition

(David Hockney below, at the Tate) or

learn to do some art at home.
