The research has been published in the American Endocrinology and Metabolism international Journal.
The study states, “Those who did not go to severe stage or fortunate to survive the infection have shown a long list of complications in later months. There is a bi directional relationship between diabetes mellitus and Covid-19. Diabetes is associated with increased risk of severe covid-19 infection.

Some patients who do not have diabetes or family history of diabetes before covid-19 infection develop new onset diabetes after covid-19 infections.”

Even today this infection remains a mystery. Every day we are encountering a new variant, a new clinical presentation and newer complications. Scientists and physicians are still not able to comprehend the full clinical course and after-effects of this infection.”
