Andre Guest - A case of COVID causing Diabetes

“Although Andre had no underlying medical conditions, the first thing doctors discovered was that he had developed Type 1 diabetes — his blood sugar was a dangerous 1,500 milligrams per deciliter, more than 10 times the normal amount. Type 1 diabetes frequently comes to light for the first time during an infection.”

Thanks for sharing, @ClaudnDaye. What a touching article. My thoughts and prayers are with the Guest family and all the families who have had to experience the “coughpunintendedcough” effects of covid.

That is just a terrible tragedy. Hits a little too close to home for me, with my story where I fought bringing my son into the doctor until he was in deep DKA.
