With influenza cases seemingly on the rise in recent weeks, we look at how older people are particularly vulnerable to complications from the viral infection. This is of concern especially for those who have coexisting chronic diseases like diabetes. Dr Nordiana Nordin, Consultant Geriatrician from Hospital Sg Buloh, joins us to shed more light on how influenza and diabetes can turn nasty when they come together.
