Special Considerations for People with COVID-19 Related Diabetes

Page Added: COVID-19 Related Diabetes

Added a new page for people who have been given a diabetes diagnosis shortly after having a COVID-19 infection. Pointed out that COVID-19 may damage the pancreas in a way that produces a Type 1, rather than a Type 2 Diabetes. Explains the importance of getting the correct diagnosis to avoid a potentially fatal case of diabetic ketoacidosis. 

Describes a possible approach to helping with high blood sugars caused by dexamethasone treatment.
