INSTANT DIGITAL

We've all done a bit of a deeper 'dive' into digital due to lockdown. We

find five key findings about wearable tech and look at online support

'bubbles' to improve our health (and happiness). By Sue Marshall.

Now that 'virtual' has

become a reality, the

time is right for using

available technology

more in order to keep

in touch with our care teams. Most

of us have now had to do something

different with our diabetes due to Covid19, whether it be attending a 'virtual' clinic

either by phone or video, or finally starting

causes Covid-19 we have been getting

connected in ways that many might not

have ever expected to be possible.

had to harness technology for our

ongoing health needs, whether we liked

it or not. Some of us may have been

early adopters, having done a virtual clinic

with our doctor, or gotten into the habit

of downloading and sending our data to

them. But for many, our recent leap into

all things digital made for some pretty big

changes in behaviours.

A study published in the journal Nature

pointed out that Type 2 diabetes and

hypertension were the most common

comorbidities for earlier coronavirus

infections too (including SARS and

MERS-CoV). The researchers cite

evidence of "a direct metabolic and

endocrine mechanistic link to the viral

disease process," and they emphasise

the importance of metabolic control amid

the pandemic. The article went on to

state, "This knowledge creates something

of a dilemma within chronic-disease care.

It's more important than ever that patients

with diabetes get the help they need, yet

amid the pandemic they have typically

been advised not to visit hospitals due to

the risk of infection. The result is a new

push from medical professionals and
