A total of 150 participants completed the survey, which revealed that 30% had changed their diabetes medication taking behaviour since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic for a number of reasons. Negative changes in physical activity levels and dietary behaviours were also reported. Of those who received a telephone consultation, high satisfaction levels were reported but a clear preference for face-to-face consultations was still present.
