Are diabetics at a greater risk to covid-19?
The data obtained from the recent studies show that people with diabetes do not appear to be at higher risk of developing COVID-19 but they are more likely to develop severe diseases and complications from COVID-19 in comparison to normal, healthy people.
This occurs mainly due to the fact that high blood sugar interferes and hinders the ability of white blood cells to fight infection thus making people more susceptible to lung infections due to their suppressed immune system.
