A new study recently released by the National Health Service in the United Kingdom showed that people with type 1 diabetes are significantly more likely to die in the hospital setting from COVID-19 than people living with type 2 diabetes.
T1D Exchange today announced the launch of a population health surveillance study of individuals with type 1 diabetes (T1D) who are suspected or confirmed to have contracted Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The results of the study will be used to better understand the etiology and potential outcomes in COVID-19 patients and inform future clinical quality improvement activities to better respond to the global pandemic.
The T1D Exchange Registry launched last year, and it’s begun to provide a fascinating and vital look into some of the more detailed aspects of life with type 1 diabetes. From your age of diagnosis to frequency of testing, we’ve learned more about how you’re living, working, and caring for diabetes across the country.
