Bird Flu and Diabetes

No one wants to catch the bird flu or any other viral infection for that matter! However, people with diabetes need to be even more careful than others, because infections push up blood glucose levels, and often require adjustments in drug dosages.

Tamiflu is an important weapon in helping people affected by bird flu and some other types of influenza recover. The U.S. FDA has issued a December 2006 update of the Patient Information Sheet for Tamiflu. I accessed it today at the following link:
