Corona virus
All updates and ways to deal with

The Indian strain of the corona virus puts Israelis in a stressful situation. Whether it is because of the number of verified patients rising or following a discourse on further closure. Among diabetics, the situation is even more stressful as it has become clear that diabetics are at risk and need to be further guarded. At the same time, a new study published in the prestigious journal shows that balanced diabetics are not at higher risk of developing a serious illness in Corona

Uncontrolled blood sugar levels are a dangerous condition at all times. A study conducted on the subject examined the link between the corona virus and diabetes and found that diabetics are at greater risk of developing heart disease, stroke, eye problems and corona complications. These findings require careful and careful management of the body’s sugar level. Also, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), diabetes is the second most common health condition associated with severe outcomes among Corona patients, and diabetics are six times more likely to get it, compared to people without background illnesses.

Despite the troubling findings, simple diabetes control may prevent severe risk situations. A recent study in China and published in the prestigious journal Cell Metabolism found that in coronary diabetics who were balanced, the mortality rate was lower compared to diabetics whose disease was unbalanced.

“Diabetes in itself is a risk factor for more severe coronary heart disease and avoiding going to the emergency room can lead to deterioration in health, which can lead to more severe coronary heart disease. If treatment is needed to better control blood sugar levels, it is recommended not to give up on emergency room. Staying high in the blood for a long time can lead to long-term complications such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, nerve damage and amputations, as well as eye and vision problems, including blindness. Uncontrolled blood sugar levels also weaken the immune system.

Therefore, it is very important that people with high blood sugar should stay in touch with their clinic staff, “explains Prof. Julio Weinstein, head of the diabetes unit at Wolfson Hospital.

The study presents some important principles in diabetes management:

  1. Medications should be taken consistently. Also, keep enough medicines in stock under the storage conditions indicated on the package.
  2. Blood sugar levels should be checked frequently using a continuous, non-punctual glucose meter and necessary adjustments to insulin and diet should be made to maintain controlled levels.
  3. Stress and strain levels should be managed: As stress increases, it can cause blood sugar levels to spiral out of control.
  4. To manage blood sugar levels and avoid unnecessary stress, maintain strong social support networks and healthy relationships, exercise (at least 150 minutes a week), get enough sleep, maintain a calm lifestyle, relax and use breathing, awareness, meditation exercises And listening to music, of course while being very careful about the precautions to avoid exposure to the corona virus – keeping your distance, and wearing a mask in public.
