COVID-19 type 2 diabetes

Mild COVID-19 cases are linked to type 2 diabetes

A recent study suggests that even mild COVID-19 cases are linked to an increased risk of subsequent new-onset type 2 diabetes. The research analyzed 35,865 patients and showed a 28% greater risk in those who had COVID-19 compared to controls. Continuous diabetes screening in anyone recovered from mild COVID-19 is recommended. Further research is needed to determine long-term implications.
