Managing Type 2 Diabetes
During the COVID-19 pandemic, a virtual-first approach should be taken in caring for patients with diabetes. The relative benefits and risks of an in-person versus virtual diabetes visit will depend on several factors including an individual’s capacity for using technology, the extent of their disease and local COVID-19 prevalence. Regardless, most diabetes care and support can be delivered through virtual ‘visits’, phone, video or secure messaging.
