Based on what we know so far about COVID-19 (coronavirus), people with diabetes and other health concerns have increased risk of more severe illness after contracting the virus than the general population. Your physician can review your medical record to give you a greater understanding of your personal risk.
Here are answers to some common questions related to diabetes and COVID-19. Please note that these answers are subject to change as we receive more information about COVID-19. If you have additional questions not answered here, call your physician or the Northwestern Medicine COVID-19 hotline at 312.47.COVID (312.472.6843).
