People with the novice corona virus may have diabetes who were safe before this silent killer disease. This was revealed in a letter published in the medical journal New England Journal of Medicine by 17 eminent medical experts.
He wrote the letter based on observations from patients who were infected with the corona virus and later diagnosed with diabetes.
It is not yet clear how the corona virus can cause diabetes.
But research has shown that a protein called S2, which is used by SARS to infect virus cells, is found not only in the lungs but also in all organs and tissues that play a role in glucose metabolism, such as Pancreas
Researchers believe that by entering these tissues, the virus may mimic itself and affect the functions of glucose metabolism.
It has been proven many years ago that a virus infection can cause type 1 diabetes.
Researchers have dubbed the new cases of diabetes in COD 19 patients the CODEB Registry Project.
Francisco Rubino, a professor of metabolic surgery at King’s College London, who is part of the Cove Deep Registry Project researcher and research team, said some Cove 19 patients already had diabetes and were unaware of it.
He said that it is possible that he was diagnosed with diabetes in the hospital now because he was fully examined there and his blood sugar also increased due to the increase in infection.
However, he said that the high number of people diagnosed with diabetes in Code 19 actually exceeded expectations and it seems difficult for so many people to be unaware of diabetes before being diagnosed with the corona virus.
He said that a few diabetics were already in the early stages of the disease and code 19 further damaged their metabolism.
“Code 19 disrupted metabolism and led to diabetes,” he said.
“It is also possible that patients’ metabolic functions may not be affected in the first place, but the virus proved to be so powerful that it led to diabetes. We are still trying to understand the situation based on these observations.” ۔
There is also evidence that the corona virus is causing serious complications in pre-diabetic patients.
Diabetes has been linked to an increase in the severity of code 19 and deaths, while 20 to 30 percent of those who died from code 19 also had diabetes.
“Diabetes is one of the most common diseases and we are now beginning to realize the consequences of the collision of these two diseases,” said Professor Francisco Rubino.
He added that the effects of the virus on humans have been minimal and it is not yet clear what mechanism the virus uses to affect glucose metabolism.
