What you can do

You can defend yourself against COVID-19 in three healthy ways.

Learn how the choices you make in what you eat and how you manage stress can help protect your health.

What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is a serious public health threat, classified as a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). It is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus that causes COVID-19 is a novel coronavirus.

What is diabetes?

Type 2 diabetes is a chronic health condition that affects the way the body processes blood sugar. If blood sugar levels aren't controlled, type 2 diabetes can lead to serious complications, including long term damage to your body’s organs and vital systems.

Diabetes and COVID-19

People with type 2 diabetes are in the high-risk category for COVID-19. They do not necessarily have a greater risk of contracting the virus. But if they do contract the virus, they are at a much greater risk of facing serious and even life-threatening complications.

Control glucose to fight COVID-19

The American Diabetes Association (ADA) stresses that controlling blood sugar is key. Maintaining good control of blood sugar helps build one’s immunity to fight infections. When your diabetes is well managed, it lowers your risk of severe complications if you develop a COVID-19 infection.

Practice good blood sugar management

Keep stress in check

Practice physical distancing

Stay away from sick people

Wash hands frequently and thoroughly
