Scientists have identified a disease that increases the likelihood of dying from coronavirus 12 times. Patients with diabetes mellitus need special control and treatment.

These are the conclusions reached by scientists at the University of California. According to their research published in the journal Medical Xpress, diabetics require hospitalization six times more often than other patients. And deaths among those suffering from diabetes mellitus are 12 times more.

The reason for this particular risk, according to University professor Prakash Didvanya, is the weakening of the immune defense of such patients. In order to prevent a severe course of the disease in time, diabetics are recommended to constantly consult with doctors, regularly monitor blood sugar levels, get enough sleep, and lead an active lifestyle.

Ранее came to the same conclusions Chinese scientists. According to them, elevated blood sugar levels affect the severity of the course of the coronavirus.
