The American Diabetes Association (ADA) states on its web site that people with either type 1 or type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM) are not necessarily at greater risk of becoming infected with COVID-19 than people without DM; they are, however, far more likely to experience severe symptoms and complications, thus to experience worse outcomes.The ADA has prepared a list of suggestions for persons with DM to protect themselves from the virus and to manage their diabetes in the event they do become infected. We summarize it below as a check list of topics for primary care physicians to discuss with their DM patients.
