COVID-19 and Diabetes


SDRI is committed to helping our community

We are in this together!

SDRI is committed to helping our community by providing up to date resources, vaccines, and support for the diabetes community.

As COVID-19 has progressed, we have learned that diabetes itself does not seem to increase the risk of contracting coronavirus. Older age and other correlating factors like high blood pressure, underlying heart or lung conditions, being overweight, or having consistently elevated blood glucose levels have a greater impact on risk. 

This means that not everyone with diabetes faces the same personal risk, but we’re only powerful against coronavirus when we work together. Join us by doing your part. Together, we have the power to shape what happens next.
