Clinical Characteristics and Risk Factors for Mortality of COVID-19 Patients with Diabetes in Wuhan, China: A Two-Center, Retrospective Study

Source: Diabetes Care

Key Takeaway: In summary, the findings of our study suggested that COVID-19 patients with diabetes had worse outcomes compared with the sex- and age-matched patients without diabetes. Diabetes was not independently associated with in-hospital death, while hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and chronic pulmonary disease played more important roles in contributing to the mortality of COVID19 patients. In-hospital death among COVID-19 patients with diabetes was associated with hypertension and advanced age, whereas only older age was independently associated with death among matched patients without diabetes. The need for early monitoring and supportive care should be addressed in these patients at high risks.
