The death toll from the corona continues to increase. According to research, it quickly affects people who are already suffering from some disease, because their immunity is already weak. Especially heart patients and people suffering from diabetes need to be more careful. Recent research has revealed that out of the total number of people who are suffering from diabetes and have become infected with corona, about 42% have died.
According to Western Cape Health researchers, most diabetic patients hospitalized have been corona test positive since the corona infection began to increase. But their death is not due to corona but because of the increase in their sugar level. In such a situation, sugar patients need to be very vigilant.
Keep these things in mind
Always check the sugar level. If your health worsens, then contact the doctor immediately, as according to health experts, the diabetic patients who died after corona infection did not get their deteriorating health checked at the beginning level.
If you see any symptoms of the corona, visit a doctor immediately and work according to its instructions. If he advises a corona test, then definitely get it done.
According to health experts, if any patient of diabetes becomes corona infected, the intake and care of medicines at the initial stage can prevent their sugar level from rising. This reduces the risk of death to a great extent.
Always keep sugar under control, so that even if you become infected with corona, you can be cured with the use of medicines.
