Study reveals high blood sugar elevates COVID-19 death risk. Patients with high blood sugar are likely to increase more than twice the death rate compared to other patients. Hyperglycaemia has more risk in death rates compared to other conditions like pneumonia, stroke, heart attacks, trauma and surgery.
But fasting blood glucose (FBG) level for the already admitted patients in the hospitals has not been completely found. The study authors from Huazhong University in China, wrote “ The study reveals fasting blood glucose (FBG) patients are to be independently treated with increased in-hospitality rate since the complications and risk factor is more for these patients.”
The journal Diabetologia published the diagnosis from two hospitals about the FBG COVID-19 patients at the time of admission and after the 28 das mortality. These reports were taken from patients who are admitted from January 24 to February 10 in two Wuhan hospitals in China. This analysis also includes CRB-65 scores of COVID-19 patients in the two hospitals.
CRB- 65 scores gives clear results about pneumonia based on the level of confusion, respiratory rate, systolic blood pressure or diastolic blood pressure, and age.
A total of 605 COVID-19 patients were enrolled, including 114 who died in hospital. The result shows 2.3% of FBG patients are more likely to death than other patients. The middle (pre-diabetic) FBG group were 71% chances to get much affected by COVID-19.
Out of which 75% chances are for men and the risk is comparatively less for women. They also added patients not related to diabetes, such as severe sepsis, systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) and traumatic brain injury are also affected with high risk.
