INFORMATION ABOUT THE FLU FOR PEOPLE WITH DIABETES AND THEIR CAREGIVERS
If you have diabetes, you are three times more likely than other people to end up in the hospital because of influenza (flu). The flu may also affect your blood glucose levels. People with diabetes (type 1 or type 2), even when well-managed, are at high risk of serious flu complications, often resulting in hospitalization and sometimes even death. Pneumonia, bronchitis, sinus infections, and ear infections are examples of flu-related complications. Protect yourself! Get more information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
