Elevated Blood Glucose is an Independent Predictor for Mortality and Complications in Patients with COVID-19

Over the weekend, another study published the connection between blood sugar issues and increased disease severity among individuals infected with The Virus.

This illustrates the story quite well: only 10% of subjects with low fasting glucose upon hospital admission ended up succumbing to the virus compared to over 30% of subjects who had high fasting glucose (above 7 mmol/L).

Similarly, only one in four patients with low fasting glucose had severe complications compared to 58% of patients who had elevated glucose.
