How can diabetics prevent COVID-19 while at home?

While the clinics of Diabetes Philippines (and most OPD clinics) are temporarily closed, it is important to STAY AT HOME to prevent getting infected with COVID-19.

Diabetes Philippines recommends the following for you to stay healthy while at home.

Eat Healthily

You can eat lots of leafy vegetables and the allowable serving of fruits with your usual low fat, less salty and less carb meals. You should also stay hydrated.

Exercise

You should exercise for at least 30 minutes every day. Examples of exercise include dancing or using the treadmill at home.

Blood Sugar Monitoring

You should check your blood sugar regularly.

Take Your Prescribed Medicines

You should inject your Insulins as per normal.

Remain at Home

You should STAY AT HOME as diabetic patients are more vulnerable to getting a more serious infection if they are infected with COVID-19.
