Free flu jab for people with diabetes | Diabetes UK

October 23, 2019

the main reason we want people with
diabetes to be protected from winter illnesses such as the flu is that when
you’ve got diabetes and are unwell your blood sugars are more than likely
gonna rise and if you get a severe infection like flu
your blood sugars can rise to a dangerous point we know that living with
diabetes is really difficult and all that good work and hard work that you
put in during the year can all be unraveled because you develop a serious
infection during winter and your blood sugars go dangerously high
