Abstract

It is of interest to evaluate the correlation of D-Dimer, blood sugars, haemoglobin and liver function tests with novel coronavirus in patients with T2DM with and without symptoms. We recruited 200 patients with T2DM and COVID 19 with and without symptoms admitted in Rajarajeshwari Medical College and Hospital, Karnataka. Blood sugars, HbA1c, D-Dimer and also the incidence of T2DM and COVID 19 with and without symptoms were evaluated in all study subjects. There was a significant increased levels of biochemical parameters in T2DM and COVID 19 with symptoms when compared to T2DM and COVID 19 without symptoms (P<0.05). The D-Dimer levels was positively correlated with CT values, (r=0.518, P<0.05). Based on the study findings, the novel coronavirus enhances the insulin resistance, hyper-glycemia, abnormality in the liver and thrombolysis. Additionally, we also suggest that the subjects with T2DM and COVID 19 with and without symptoms require continuous monitoring of D-DIMER and LFT.
