Patients who have diabetes mellitus and have had a new coronavirus infection need to be hospitalized six times more often, because their COVID-19 disease has more severe course than with those who do not have diabetes. In addition, they are 12 times more likely to die from COVID-19.

This was found out by the specialists from the University of California. Scientists published the results of their research in the journal MedicalXpress.

Diabetes is in second place among the factors that lead to the severe course of coronavirus infection. In the first place are cardiovascular diseases.

Professor Prakash Deedwania reports that patients diagnosed with diabetes have a weakened immune defense function of the body. Diabetics must constantly check their blood sugar levels and be in contact with doctors, he said. Also, patients need to lead an active lifestyle and sleep well.

Dr. Joshua Joseph, of the Department of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism, Waxner Medical Center, Ohio State University at Columbus, believes it is imperative that doctors constantly monitor the possible occurrence of hypoglycemia, which is as dangerous as high blood glucose.

Let us recall that steh cientists have warned of the danger of a diabetes epidemic after the coronavirus pandemic.

Meanwhile, the director of the Center for Epidemiology and Microbiology named after N. F. Gamaleya Alexander Guntsburg said that the coronavirus vaccine is suitable for people with diseases of the immune system, including diabetes.

Earlier, the doctor and TV presenter Alexander Myasnikov called a number of factors, including blood pressure, blood cholesterol levels, blood sugar levels and waist volume, as a "deadly quartet".
