Why Coronavirus Is Dangerous For Diabetics

  • Why Coronavirus Is Dangerous For Diabetics


    Coronavirus can be terrifying for an average healthy person but what about those who are considered “high risk.” The Center for Disease Control and the World Health Organization state those at higher risk for the worst outcomes for the virus are older adults and people with chronic illnesses like heart disease, lung disease and diabetes.
    CNBC explores why is coronavirus more dangerous for diabetics.

    Why is diabetes a risk factor for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)?

    High plasma glucose levels and diabetes mellitus (DM) are known risk factors for pneumonia.
    Potential mechanisms that may increase the susceptibility for COVID-19 in patients with DM include the following:
    1. Higher-affinity cellular binding and efficient virus entry.
    2. Decreased viral clearance.
    3. Diminished T-cell function.
    4. Increased susceptibility to hyperinflammation and cytokine storm syndrome.
    5. Presence of cardiovascular disease.
    SARS-CoV-2 is known to utilize angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptors for entry into target cells.
    Insulin administration attenuates (to make something weaker, smaller or less effective) ACE2 expression, while hypoglycemic agents (eg, glucagonlike peptide 1 [GLP-1] agonists, thiazolidinediones) up-regulate ACE2.
    Dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP-4) is highly involved in glucose and insulin metabolism, as well as in immune regulation. This protein was shown to be a functional receptor for Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV), and protein modeling suggests that it may play a similar role with SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19.
    Dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors (gliptins) E.g., Sitagliptin, Saxagliptin, Linagliptin
    These indirectly increase the endogenous incretin effect by inhibiting the DPP-4 that breaks down GLP-1 → ↑ insulin secretion, ↓ glucagon secretion, delayed gastric emptying.
    incretin is digestive tract hormone that increases insulin secretion from beta cells of the pancreas, decreases glucagon levels and slows gastric emptying in response to food intake. Two major incretins are glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP).
    The relationship between diabetes, coronavirus infections, ACE2, and DPP-4 has been reviewed by Drucker. Important clinical conclusions of the review include the following:
    • Hospitalization is more common for acute COVID-19 among patients with diabetes and obesity.
    • Diabetic medications need to be reevaluated upon admission for every patient who is suffering from diabetes
    • Insulin is the glucose-lowering therapy of choice, not DPP-4 inhibitors or GLP-1 receptor agonists, in patients with diabetes who are hospitalized with acute COVID-19.

  • Link Between Covid And Diabetes? | Coronavirus: Facts Vs Myths


    A team of researchers from King's College, London, and Australia's Monash University have created a database of information that relates COVID-19 and Type 2 diabetes. Their research has shown that people with Type 2 diabetes are more likely to suffer severe symptoms of the disease. They've also claimed there is mounting evidence suggesting that COVID-19 could cause people to become diabetic.

  • COVID-19 Insights: Diabetes and COVID-19


    Diabetes and COVID-19

    Characteristics of and Important Lessons From the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Outbreak in China

    Chinese data till February 11th 2020
    Case fatality rate (CFR)
    Cardiovascular diseases: 10.5%
    Diabetes: 7.3%
    Chronic respiratory diseases: 6.3%
    Hypertension: 6%
    Cancer: 5.6%

    Prevention steps to stay healthy

    Diabetic patients are
    More prone to dehydration due to elevated glucose. (As the kidneys throw the glucose out and in the process throw the water out as well.) So keep it controlled.
    When A1C goes in 9-10 range then the risk of complications increases significantly.

    What to do?
    Wash hands
    Wear mask
    Get a flu shot
    If you are insulin dependent then keep extra insulin at hand.
    Keep your diabetes and hypertension well managed.

    What happens to immune system in diabetes?

    Chronic hyperglycemia causes blood vessel narrowing and damage leading to slower perfusion and nerve damage. Nerve damage occurs both because of poor blood supply to the nerves and the accumulation of glucose in the myeline sheath and damaging it.

    High glucose levels impair neutrophil activity (innate arm.)
    Cytosolic calcium increases in PMN cells. This in turn reduces their ability to phagocytose. It happens because high levels of calcium reduce the synthesis of ATP that in turn is needed for the cellular function.
    Study showing that the hyperglycemia increases intracellular calcium:

    PMN chemotaxis is also impaired.
    Reduced complement response
    Reduced leukocyte adherence to the blood vessels. Study mentioining endothelial dysfunction:
    Reduced response to pathogens
    Chronic hyperglycemia leads to acidosis which further reduces the activity of the immune system. (Study mentioning immune dysregulation with various acids:
    Skin cells become less efficient and skin and urinary infections become common.

    Additionally, the reduced carbohydrate metabolism causes increased fatty acids mobilization. This results in the vascular endothelium to become atherosclerotic. Resulting also, in the narrowing of the blood vessels and reduced perfusion.
    High free fatty acids also cause high levels of reactive oxygen species. This in turn makes our tissues prone to easy damage.
    FFA cause disruption of insulin responding mechanisms.
    Inflammation caused by ROS leading to adipocyte insulin resistance and inflammation:

    Hyperglycemia causes an increase of dicarbonyl production. Dicarbonyl in turn reduces the function of beta-definsins. That are necessary to kill pathogens.

    Endocrine and metabolic link to coronavirus infection

    MERS COV and diabetes
    Comorbid diabetes results in immune dysregulation and enhanced disease severity following MERS-CoV infection

    T Helper 17 cells that release IL-17alpha

    Transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β), interleukin 6 (IL-6), interleukin 21 (IL-21) and interleukin 23 (IL-23) contribute to Th17 formation in mice and humans.

    Vitamin D in turn severely impairs the production of the TH17 cells. Hence, reducing the proinflammatory behavior.

    ACE2 activity is upgregulated in pancreas of the diabetic patients.

    Binding of SARS coronavirus to its receptor damages islets and causes acute diabetes

    Why Is Coronavirus a Bigger Worry for People With Diabetes?

    Everything You Should Know About Coronavirus and Diabetes

    Are people with diabetes more likely to get COVID-19?

    How about DKA and complication?

    What are the concerning signs?
    Shortness of breath
    Persistent pressure/pain in the chest
    New confusion or inability to arouse
    Bluish lips/tongue or face

    High blood sugar means that cells have less sugar to function. This includes the immune cells. Hence, all cells become an easy target.

    Calcium depletion in the presence of hyperglycemia

  • COVID-19 and Diabetes Are a Dangerous Mix


    People who have diabetes are at a much greater risk of dying from COVID-19, or developing severe symptoms and complications. Researchers are finding that many serious problems can be triggered by COVID's impact on blood sugar levels.

  • Can COVID-19 infection lead to diabetes?


    There is limited evidence on this subject. But scientific journal, Nature published an article on June 24 which says. That an 18-year-old German patient who tested positive for COVID-19
    but remained asymptomatic, was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes two weeks later. The patient's doctor suspects that the virus destroyed his β-cells which are responsible for the production of the insulin hormone. Diabetes is considered a condition which could be deadly for COVID-19 patients. The Nature article also says that dozens of COVID-19 patients with high levels of blood sugar and ketones have been reported. Earlier studies have reported that viruses including SARS have been linked to autoimmune conditions like Type 1 diabetes. This could be because of organs that control blood sugar are also rich in ACE2, a protein that the novel coronavirus uses to infect cells

  • Third of coronavirus deaths in Englands hospitals linked to diabetes


    The NHS has found that almost a third of all coronavirus deaths in England's hospitals are linked to diabetes - with the highest risk for people with type 1 diabetes, who are three and a half times more likely to die from the virus than non-diabetics.


    But the overwhelming majority of Covid patients with diabetes who have died are Type 2 diabetics. Their risk of dying is twice that of people without diabetes.

    Factors like age and obesity, which are common in Type 2, make a significant difference.

  • COVID-19 | Coronavirus: Epidemiology, Pathophysiology, Diagnostics


    Ninja Nerds,

    What is Corona virus? What is COVID-19? Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) caused by SARS-COV2 is a new strain that was discovered in 2019 and has not been previously identified in humans.
    Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.  Detailed investigations found that SARS-CoV was transmitted from civet cats to humans and MERS-CoV from camels to humans. Several known coronaviruses are circulating in animals that have not yet infected humans. It is believed that COVID-19 was transmitted from pangolin to humans (current theory).
    Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death (WHO, 2020).
    Ninja Nerd Lectures has compiled the most up to date and recent data on COVID-19 as of March 15, 2020. Please follow along with this lecture to understand the origin and zoonosis of COVID-19, the routes of transmission, epidemiology (current as of 3/15/2020), pathophysiology, and diagnostic tests used to identify COVID-19.

    Why #Coronavirus is More Dangerous for #Diabetics? | Dr. Amit Kr. Dey @ CareClues

    Pre-existing medical conditions, including #diabetes increase the risk of developing severe illness from #COVID19. The immune system of diabetics is compromised and the #coronavirus thrives more in an environment of high blood sugar levels. Additionally, the presence of diabetes complications and fluctuating blood glucose levels make it harder to treat viral infections in diabetes patients. Diabetics must be extra cautious in monitoring their blood glucose levels and protecting themselves from the novel coronavirus.

    If you notice flu-like or other symptoms of COVID-19, get in touch with a medical professional immediately.

    Diabetes mellitus is a disorder in which blood sugar (glucose) levels are abnormally high because the body does not produce enough insulin to meet its needs.

    Type 1 Diabetes Mellitus
    In type 1 diabetes (formerly called insulin-dependent diabetes or juvenile-onset diabetes), the body's immune system attacks the insulin-producing cells of the pancreas, and more than 90% of them are permanently destroyed. The pancreas, therefore, produces little or no insulin. Only about 5 to 10% of all people with diabetes have type 1 disease. Most people who have type 1 diabetes develop the disease before age 30, although it can develop later in life.

    Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus
    In type 2 diabetes (formerly called non– insulin-dependent diabetes or adult-onset diabetes), the pancreas often continues to produce insulin, sometimes even at higher-than-normal levels, especially early in the disease. However, the body develops resistance to the effects of insulin, so there is not enough insulin to meet the body’s needs. As type 2 diabetes progresses, the insulin-producing ability of the pancreas decreases.

    Complications of diabetes
    (1) Brain, causing a stroke
    (2) Eyes (diabetic retinopathy), causing blindness
    (3) Heart, causing a heart attack
    (4) Kidneys (diabetic nephropathy), causing chronic kidney disease
    (5) Nerves (diabetic neuropathy), causing a decreased sensation in feet

  • Why is COVID-19 More Dangerous for Diabetics?


    Coronavirus could be terrifying for a person who is considered being at a “high-risk”. Older adults and people with chronic health conditions such as diabetes, lung disease, and heart conditions are considered as people with a higher risk for the worst outcomes of the COVID-19 according to the World Health Organization and the Centres for Disease Control. This video explores why coronavirus is more dangerous in diabetes patients when it is a respiratory disease.

    Three mechanisms have been described for the increased risk of COVID-19 in diabetes patients. Diabetics have a high expression of ACE2 receptors due to their medications that could facilitate the SARS-CoV2. Diabetics usually have a high BMI, which is again an independent risk factor for COVID-19. Patients with fluctuating blood glucose levels have a suppressed immune system that makes them more susceptible to infection. Managing blood glucose levels is very important as it can minimize the risk of infection.

  • Coronavirus: Diabetic patient urges people to act on danger signs


    Doctors say an early Covid-19 test can prevent near-fatal deterioration in patients with underlying health conditions.

  • Why Coronavirus Is Dangerous For Diabetics #covid19 #diabetes #mohfw


    How coronavirus (Covid-19) affects people with Diabetes?
    Why is diabetes a risk factor for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)?

    High plasma glucose levels and diabetes mellitus (DM) are known risk factors for pneumonia. Potential mechanisms that may increase the susceptibility for COVID-19 in patients with DM include the following:
    • Higher-affinity cellular binding and efficient virus entry
    • Decreased viral clearance
    • Diminished T-cell function
    • Increased susceptibility to hyperinflammation and cytokine storm syndrome
    • Presence of cardiovascular disease
    SARS-CoV-2 is known to utilize angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) receptors for entry into target cells. Insulin administration attenuates ACE2 expression, while hypoglycemic agents (eg, glucagonlike peptide 1 [GLP-1] agonists, thiazolidinediones) up-regulate ACE2. Dipeptidyl peptidase 4 (DPP-4) is highly involved in glucose and insulin metabolism, as well as in immune regulation. This protein was shown to be a functional receptor for Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV), and protein modeling suggests that it may play a similar role with SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for COVID-19.
    The relationship between diabetes, coronavirus infections, ACE2, and DPP-4 has been reviewed by Drucker. Important clinical conclusions of the review include the following:
    • Hospitalization is more common for acute COVID-19 among patients with diabetes and obesity.
    • Diabetic medications need to be reevaluated upon admission.
    • Insulin is the glucose-lowering therapy of choice, not DPP-4 inhibitors or GLP-1 receptor agonists, in patients with diabetes who are hospitalized with acute COVID-19.
