Being discharged

Sometimes being discharged from

hospital can feel confusing or make you

a little anxious. A new leaflet produced

by Diabetes UK and ABCD lets you know

what to expect when you are discharged.

There are also handy tips on things to think

about after leaving hospital to ensure you

stay as safe as possible. There is specific

information on what you should expect on

discharge and what the hospital should

supply you with. Then there are things

you'll need to think about after leaving

hospital including: medication, hypos,

blood glucose monitoring, how to handle

illness, ketones and a reminder to look

after your feet.

There's some info on what you might

need to consider if you are new to insulin

therapy, as well as who to contact to

get follow-up support. The content was

written by a national team of clinical

experts and designed by the Leicester

Diabetes Centre.

New support

The NHS has launched new online support

for people with diabetes with tools now

available on the NHS in order to help

people manage their condition during the

coronavirus pandemic. Three new services

allow people to manage their condition

online, with a range of online videos and

training available on apps designed for

both children and adults.

Recent findings show that people

with diabetes face a significantly higher

risk of dying with Covid-19 but better

management of the condition can help

improve control and lead to better

outcomes. NHS investment in the

technology means that patients will be

offered advice on treatment and care,

as well as training to adopt healthy

behaviours on diet and exercise. This

remote support will complement patients'

appointments, many of which have been

going ahead throughout the pandemic,

through video consultations or via

telephone, and more recently in Covid

protected areas. There are already online

appointments, routine discussions with

GPs and a dedicated helpline for those

treated with insulin so that diabetes care

can go ahead as normal.

Digibete: Children and young people

with Type 1 diabetes and their families

will be able to use the DigiBete App and

website for a wide range of awareness,

education, training and support resources.

MyType1Diabetes: Adults with Type

1 diabetes can access the service directly

by visiting myType1diabetes.nhs.uk, it

includes videos and eLearning courses,

to help people understand more about

their Type 1 diabetes and increase their

confidence in how to manage it.

The NHS Diabetes Prevention

Programme is also being delivered

remotely using platforms such as

Microsoft Teams to continue to help those

at risk of T2 diabetes to reduce their risk.

Professor Partha Kar, national

specialty advisor on diabetes for NHS

England commented, "NHS has taken

action to help people and keep them

safe, including the roll out of these helpful

apps. Access to trusted information and

support is key to helping people manage

their diabetes and we are delighted to

support these tools which will hopefully

empower people to look after their own

condition and reduce their risk."

Micropatch potential

Merck has exercised its option to

use Vaxxas' High Density Microarray

Patch (HD-MAP) platform as a delivery

platform for a vaccine candidate. The

companies did not disclose what the

vaccine candidate is supposed to treat.

As reported by drugdeliverybusiness

Merck has announced two Covid19 vaccine development efforts:

a

collaboration with IAVI and plans to acquire

vaccine developer Themis Bioscience.

Vaxxas notes that any vaccine could
