Thiruvananthapuram: All those who become Kovid-positive will be screened for diabetes. The Department of Health has issued special treatment guidelines to control the high mortality rate among diabetics. The state death audit found that most of the diabetic Kovid patients died. The goal is to reduce this.
Statistics show that the mortality rate between Kovid, confirmed type 1 and 2 diabetics is much higher compared to those without diabetes. When they are infected with covid, their need for insulin increases and they go into a state of hyperglycemia. To prevent this, health care should be provided from the beginning.
If you have been diagnosed with diabetes before, you should collect information about your type, type of insulin use, and information about your hyperglycemic conditions. Patients with severe diabetes should be treated with insulin and urinary ketones. People with diabetes should notify health workers as soon as Kovid is confirmed.
