Key Takeaways from this Study
- Diabetes status increased the need for medical interventions during COVID-19
- Diabetes status increased the mortality risk of patients with COVID-19
- Well-controlled blood glucose correlated with improved outcomes in infected patients
“…we found that compared to individuals with well-controlled blood glucose, poor glycemic control in patients with COVID-19 and pre-existing type 2 diabetes was associated with worse outcomes, involving increased need for medical interventions, multi-organ injuries, and higher mortalities.”
