Covid & T1 diabetes

A new report from JDRF finds almost one in two UK

adults with Type 1 diabetes (47%) believe the Covid-19

pandemic - and the disruption to NHS diabetes

services it triggered - is likely to have a long-term

impact on their life with the condition.

The Type 1 charity JDRF

surveyed more than 1,000

people living with Type 1 or

caring for a child living with

it to reveal their experiences through

the upheavals of the pandemic. The

findings show the impact of the

withdrawal and repurposing of many

NHS diabetes services on people with

Type 1.

The survey found that half of

adults with Type 1 said they felt

unsupported at times during the

Covid crisis, with 63% of adults

reporting they could not access

their usual level of healthcare

support. This is significantly higher

than adults living with other health

conditions, such as cancer or heart

problems. The study highlights the

experiences of those most likely

to be hardest hit by the effect of

the pandemic: Through qualitative

interviews with people with Type 1

in lower-income households, ethnic

minority communities and people

living with Type 1 as well as other

long term health conditions. The

report found a range and variation

of care, according to particular

local specialist and primary care

service provision.

The report shows that people

with access to Type 1 wearable

medical technologies, such as insulin

pumps, flash and CGM, felt more able

to manage their condition during

the pandemic. Recent studies have

found that people from socially

deprived areas, ethnic minority

backgrounds, and older people who

were diagnosed longer ago typically

have lower usage of Type 1 diabetes

technology, making them potentially

worse off throughout the pandemic.

Positive outcomes

UK Chief Executive of JDRF

Karen Addington said: "Our

recommendations point the way

for an NHS that can build back an

integrated Type 1 diabetes service

that optimises quality of care and

support, as well as positive outcomes

for those living with the condition.

People affected by Type 1 diabetes

hold expertise. Such expertise is

valuable for clinical adaptation as

we move beyond Covid. Despite the

major disruption to Type 1 diabetes

healthcare, 58% of adults living

with Type 1 diabetes felt the NHS

had done its best to support them

during the pandemic. This reflects

an admiration of NHS staff and their

efforts throughout the pandemic that

we at JDRF share. JDRF is committed

to working with its partners in

the NHS, government and other

stakeholders on the adoption of the

recommendations in our report, to

help guide the rebuilding of NHS

services and support."

A further finding identified

that adults living with Type 1

reported greater disruption in their

diabetes health care services than

parents with children living with

the condition.

JDRF's report, Covid and Beyond:

Confronting the Unequal Access

to Type 1 Diabetes Healthcare, sets

out a series of recommendations

anchored in the needs of people

living with Type 1.

The report's recommendations

are:

Increased access to Type 1

technology.

A choice of virtual, telephone

and face-to-face appointments

to provide people with Type

1 diabetes different ways

to communicate with their

healthcare professionals.

Improved communication from

the NHS, which needs to be more

proactive when care is disrupted.

People with Type 1 diabetes to

be at the heart of service design

and delivery.
