Lack of type 1 diabetes involvement in SARS-COV-2 population: Only a particular coincidence?

In 1591 Italian subjects affected by SARS-COV-2, there was a prevalence of 17% of type 2 diabetes. In analogy to what has been shown in a Chinese population [2] and in another group of Italian subjects [3], surprisingly no cases with type 1 diabetes are apparently reported. This observation needs to be confirmed and further evaluated, for example in regions with high prevalence of the disease (Scandinavian, Finland or Sardinian), but there could be a number of reasons that justify a low incidence of SARS-COV-2 in subjects with type 1 diabetes.

CONCLUSIONS: Immunohistochemistry seems to be a promising option not only in clinical recognition, but also in the selection and monitoring of treatment effects. However, these methods have not yet recommended for routine clinical use. PMID: 33032462 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Siamashvili M, Davis S Abstract INTRODUCTION: Bromocriptine mesylate quick release (QR) is a dopamine D2 receptor agonist and is the only oral, primarily centrally acting drug that can be used for the treatment of adults with type 2 diabetes. AREAS COVERED: The authors describe current recommendations on the use of bromocriptine mesylate QR. Major efficacy and safety parameters of the late phase trials, including The Cycloset Safety Trial, have been identified and presented. EXPERT OPINION: Efficacy of bromocriptine mesylate QR monotherapy appears to be low but is compensated by favorable safety pr...

AbstractCOVID-19 is an infectious respiratory disease which firstly occurred in Wuhan, China and evolved rapidly around the globe. The causative pathogen is a novel coronavirus called SARS-CoV-2 with genomic similarities with SARS-CoV and MERS-CoV. The disease is transmitted among humans either through direct contact or via droplets from sneeze or cough. Most infected persons remain asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic, but some patients may develop severe clinical features, including pneumonia, respiratory failure, sepsis and even death. People of advanced age and/or with underlying diseases (including diabetes mellitus) ar...

In our interim report describing the first 177 SARS-CoV-2 positive symptomatic pediatric patients presenting for care at our institution, 5 patients (3%) had an underlying diagnoses of diabetes. All five of these patients were female, ranging from 13-20 years of age. Four (4) of the five patients had Type 2 diabetes and only 1 patient had Type 1 diabetes. All of the patients had been diagnosed with diabetes from 1.5 to 9 years prior to their SARS-CoV-2 infection; none of these patients had new onset diabetes and none presented in diabetic ketoacidosis

This study is par for the course, looking at Japanese Olympic participants. Interestingly, it hints at the upper end of the dose-response curve for physical activity, in that a longer career as a professional athlete may be detrimental in comparison to lesser degrees of exercise and training. From this large, retrospective cohort study targeting 3546 Japanese Olympic athletes, we observed significant lower mortality among Olympians compared with the Japanese general population. The overall standardised mortality ratio (SMR) was 0.29. The results were consistent with previous studies conducted in other non-Asian co...

Javad Sharifi-Rad Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a chronic metabolic disease with high morbimortality rates. DM has two types: type 1, which is often associated with a total destruction of pancreatic beta cells, and non-insulin-dependent or type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), more closely associated with obesity and old age. The main causes of T2DM are insulin resistance and/or inadequate insulin secretion. Protein-tyrosine phosphatase 1B (PTP1B) negatively regulates insulin signaling pathways and plays an important role in T2DM, as its overexpression may induce insulin resistance. Thus, since PTP1B may be a therapeutic targe...
