Type 2 diabetes drug used in corona patients: It has been more than two years since the corona epidemic, but till now no concrete treatment has come to the fore. Even now people are dying due to the havoc of Corona. Research is being done all over the world in the direction of finding a cure for corona. Now a new research has claimed that the drug used in type 2 diabetes, if taken earlier, greatly reduces the risk of hospitalization and death. ScienceDaily According to the news of this drug is already being used on patients of obesity and type-2 diabetes.
Researchers at Penn State College of Medicine have said that in a study, patients suffering from type-2 diabetes were given this drug six months before getting Kovid-19, they developed respiratory problems. faced less. Also, such patients did not even need to go to the hospital. Apart from this, the risk of death in such patients was also greatly reduced. That is, if the drug already used in type-2 diabetes is given, then such people can be saved from falling seriously ill due to corona.
Medicine can provide protection against Kovid
Researchers at Penn State College of Medicine in the US analyzed electronic medical records of nearly 30,000 patients with type 2 diabetes who were diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 between January and September 2020. The study said that the drug glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor (GLP-1R) needs to be further tested. Now it will be investigated whether this drug can provide potential protection against the complications of Kovid-19. Professor Patricia Grigson at Penn State said, “Our findings are very encouraging because GLP-1R appears to be very protective, but the use of these drugs and the risk of severe COVID-19 in patients with type 2 diabetes may be reduced. Further research is needed to establish the relationship between
People suffering from type 2 diabetes die more than corona
The vaccine is by far the most effective protection against hospitalization and death due to Kovid-19, but additional effective treatment is needed to improve the condition of patients with severe infections, the researchers said. Patients suffering from Kovid-19 who are already suffering from diseases like diabetes are at high risk of infection and may even die. A recent study in Britain said that of the people who died due to Kovid-19 in the country, about a third were people with type 2 diabetes.
