Diabetes and COVID-19 Link

I have results from my clinic… Three of my diabetic patients went into remission after using hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). Two patients had type 1 diabetes… and another had type 2 diabetes. All three recovered with oxygen therapy. Most mainstream doctors would scoff at the idea… they “know” there’s no cure for diabetes. And to be treated for it with oxygen seems laughable. If you’re a regular reader, you know more about oxygen therapy than 99% of the general public, including most doctors. But the reason diabetes responds so well to oxygen may surprise you… It also explains why diabetics are at higher risk for complications from COVID-19. Let me explain. Are Diabetes and COVID-19 Oxygen Thieves? In a previous letter, I shared a new study with you that proposes a new mechanism behind the coronavirus. According to this new research, the real threat behind this virus is not oxygen absorption in the lungs… it’s an oxygen delivery problem.1 This new theory suggests the coronavirus attacks the iron and hemoglobin (oxygen carrier) in your red blood cells, then inserts itself in the cell’s nucleus. This “hostile takeover” allows the virus to replicate. That means COVID-19 may sabotage your cells’ ability to carry oxygen, and that’s bad news for diabetics. You’ve probably heard of HbA1c, often referred to simply as A1c. It’s an important biomarker for diabetics a...

Health care systems have encountered unprecedented challenges during the coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, such as standardizing care in the absence of high-quality data. As an emblematic example, preliminary data and early anecdotal experience suggested that a major driver of COVID-19 pathophysiology was hypercoagulability, suggesting the need for aggressive anticoagulation. In this article, we describe the rapid guidance process for the development of an anticoagulation protocol for COVID-19. Preliminary evidence was collected from multidisciplinary experts within our institution to inform the first protocol ...

AbstractThe COVID-19 pandemic has called for and generated massive novel government regulations to increase social distancing for the purpose of reducing disease transmission. A number of studies have attempted to guide and measure the effectiveness of these policies, but there has been less focus on the overall efficiency of these policies. Efficient social distancing requires implementing stricter restrictions during periods of high viral prevalence and rationing social contact to disproportionately preserve gatherings that produce a good ratio of benefits to transmission risk. To evaluate whether U.S. social distancing ...
