German researchers: Corona virus may cause diabetes | Health | A must for better health | DW


German researchers revealed a case in which a person developed diabetes after contracting the CoronavirusAs stated in a report carried by the “Der Spiegel” website, for the “Nature Metabolism” medical journal.

Researchers from the German city of Kiel, in the report, said that a 19-year-old patient arrived at a clinic in the city with severe and recent symptoms of diabetes due to a lack of insulin in his body. After he was tested, it was found that he had Corona about five to seven weeks before that.

According to the report, Type 1 diabetes An autoimmune disorder results when the body’s immune system perceives the beta cells in the pancreas, which are responsible for producing insulin, as foreign bodies and starts attacking them. What leads to a lack of insulin secretion and diabetesAs Dr. Matthias Laudz, researcher at the Christian-Albrecht University in Kiel.

But the body of the patient who visited the clinic did not show any autoimmune disorder, as Lodz said, adding: “We assume that the virus that causes Covid-19 is the one that attacked the beta cells,” and led to a disturbance in insulin production.

Scientists’ assumption that the Corona virus can lead to diabetes is not newResearchers touched on this in a report published in the New England Journal of Medicine at the end of June.

But the German researchers in Kiel confirm that their conclusions are not reliable evidence that infection with the Coronavirus leads to diabetes, so even in the case of the sick young man, the researchers put the possibility that the young man had undetected diabetes (without showing symptoms) before he had Corona. German researchers believe that the issue of the relationship between Corona and diabetes needs more research to clarify it.
