IMPACT OF DIABETES MELLITUS ON PATIENTS WITH COVID-19
Keywords:Mortality, Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio, SARS-CoV-2.
Background: The aim of the study was to analyze the demographical and routine laboratory parameters in COVID-19 patients having diabetes and to observe the impact of diabetes on the COVID-19 disease severity and outcome. Methods: In this retrospective study, consecutive COVID-19 patients of all age groups were enrolled. Demographical, clinical and laboratory details were collected and analysed. Patients were classified into two groups: group I (diabetic patients, n=50), group II (non-diabetic with no other comorbidity, n=50). Results: The mortality rate was 9/50(18.00%) in the diabetic COVID-19 patients. Also, 43/50 (86.00%) patients had severe COVID-19 disease and 21/50 (42.00%) of patients required ventilator support during the treatment. Conclusion: The severity, ventilator requirement and mortality were considerably higher in COVID-19 patients having diabetes.
Key words: Mortality, Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio, SARS-CoV-2.
