Coronavirus: older diabetics most at risk

Diabetes is a co-morbidity factor for Covid-19, which was identified fairly quickly at the start of the epidemic. A study carried out in more than 50 hospitals with diabetic patients makes it possible to determine which profile is most at risk.

Since the beginning of the epidemic of Covid-19 , diabetes is known to be a factor comorbidity significant with, among others, the obesity and hypertension . But the term diabetes describes two very different pathologies : one is an autoimmune disease, it is type 1 diabetes, and the other is linked to food, it generally appears with age, c is type 2 diabetes.
