New online tools for people living with diabetes are now available on the NHS to help people manage their condition during the coronavirus pandemic.
Three new services will allow people to manage their condition online, with a range of online videos and training available on each app for 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.
