Another conclusion made by scientists is related to the access of patients with diabetes to drugs. 13.8% of respondents admitted that during the COVID-19 epidemic it became more difficult for them to get the necessary medicines. Those who were forced to self-isolate experienced problems with obtaining drugs 1.9 times more often. And those who used insulin were twice as likely to have limited access to medication.
The results of the study were published in the journal Diabetology and Metabolic Syndrome.
