The novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has been on the rampage ever since its outbreak in December 2019 in Wuhan, China. To date, the disease has affected over 5.3 million people, inflicting more than 342,000 casualties in over 200 nations worldwide [1]. Although the overall mortality rate of COVID-19 ranges from 1.4 to 7.2% [2,3], patients with underlying co-morbidities like diabetes mellitus (DM) tend to have severe disease, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) and increased mortality [4,5], People with both type 1 diabetes mellitus (T1DM) and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) are at a high risk of poor outcomes with COVID-19 [6].

Abstract Recent retrospective studies of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) disease (COVID-19) revealed that the patients with common comorbidities of cancers and chronic diseases face significantly poorer clinical outcomes than those without. Since the expression profile of ACE2, a crucial cell entry receptor for SARS-CoV-2, could indicate the susceptibility to SARS-CoV-2 infection, here we systematically dissected ACE2 expression using large-scale multi-omics data from 30 organs/tissues, 33 cancer types and some common chronic diseases involving>28 000 samples. It was found that...

SARS-CoV-2 is a novel coronavirus first diagnosed in US hospitals in January 2020. Typical presenting symptoms include fever, dry cough, dyspnea, and hypoxia. However, several other symptoms have been reported, including fatigue, weakness, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. We have identified a series of patients with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) likely precipitated by COVID-19.

Diabetes mellitus (DM), especially type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), has been identified as a risk factor for poor outcomes in patients with COVID-19 caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2)(1), although the underlying pathophysiology is not understood(2). Anecdotally, a high incidence of ketoacidosis has been observed in patients admitted to hospital with COVID-19 but currently there remains a lack of peer-reviewed studies addressing this(3).

We reported a severe COVID-19 patient with diabetes and shared our experience with blood glucose management. Patient concerns: A 64-year-old female diabetes patient was admitted to the intensive care unit due to productive coughing for 8 days without any obvious cause. The results of blood gas analysis indicated that the partial pressure of oxygen was 84 mm Hg with oxygen 8 L/min, and the oxygenation index was less than 200 mm Hg. In addition, postprandial blood glucose levels were abnormal (29.9 mmol/L). Diagnoses: The patient was diagnosed with COVID-19 (severe type) and type 2 diabetes. Interventions: Compr...

In a press briefing on June 25, Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), said that the current official count of COVID-19 cases in the U.S. may actually be a drastic underestimate. Redfield said the new, much-higher estimate, is based on growing data from antibody testing, which picks up the presence of immune cells that react to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. People will test positive for antibodies to the virus if they have been infected—whether or not they ever got sick or even developed symptoms. Previously, testing was focused only on those with sym...

;nez-Alvarado MDR Abstract Diabetes mellitus is a complex, multifactorial, chronic disease characterized by impaired metabolism of glucose, fats and proteins. Patients who suffer from it frequently have hyperglycemia and coronary artery disease is the leading cause of death. The comorbidities associated with diabetes are overweight and obesity, systemic arterial hypertension, atherogenic dyslipidemia and in some patients peripheral vascular disease, kidney damage, neuropathy and retinopathy. Chronic lack of control of the disease is associated with increased susceptibility to infections, which generally have few s...
