COVID-19 Could Raise Diabetes Risk, , New Study Says.
NPR reports a new study suggests
that those who experienced even
a mild coronavirus infection.
face a heightened risk of contracting diabetes within one year of recovering from it.
The study published in ‘The Lancet’ says those who suffered from COVID-19 were nearly 40% more likely to end up diabetic.
What’s surprising is that it is happening in people with no prior risk factors for diabetes. , Lead author of study Ziyad Al-Aly, via NPR.
Such findings now seem to be the norm, as coronavirus infections have been linked to long-term heart issues and chronic fatigue.
The study says almost 1% to 2% of
Americans will develop diabetes as
a result of their COVID-19 infection.

Experts say it doesn’t sound like much,
but nearly 80 million Americans have
tested positive for coronavirus.
which means 800,000 to 1.6 million
Americans could develop diabetes
that may have not otherwise.
That translates to a really significant number of people
with new onset diabetes in
the U.S. and many, many
more around the world, Lead author of study Ziyad Al-Aly, via NPR.

We need to start
treating COVID as a risk factor for diabetes. , Lead author of study Ziyad Al-Aly, via NPR
