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.
Supporting healthy glucose metabolism doesn’t obviate the need to wear a face mask, but the data in multiple studies is quite clear: tighter blood sugar control translates into better outcomes for those infected with the disease.

Yet another study found higher mortality in patients with high-fasting glucose upon admission to the hospital 🏥. This comes roughly two months after the Cell Metabolism paper we discussed in early May reporting a similar pattern. Seems crazy that California just closed their gyms and other businesses for the second time yet continue to let people buy McDonald’s and Chick-Fil-A. Seems that we’re never going to learn… #bloodsugarproblems #diabetes #bloodsugar #glucose #lowcarb #keto #ketogenic #ketodiet #ketogenicdiet #fasting #intermittentfasting #autophagy #fitness #exercise #fastedexercise #
