How Diabetics Can Avoid the Deadly Consequences of COVID-19

COVID-19 is a deadly virus that targets the lungs of infected patients causing severe breathing difficulties. It is lung specific, ie the virus only has cell receptors for lung cells. It causes your lungs to gum up which means breathing becomes laboured as you struggle for breath.

The only way for the virus to infect you is through your nose, mouth, or eyes when you touch them with your hands or through an infected cough or sneeze that lands on one of these three openings into your body. The secret to preventing infection is to avoid touching your face and to avoid close contact with other people as you do not know who could be infected.

People with type 2 diabetes (T2D), high blood pressure or obesity are more likely to become severely ill or indeed die if they are infected with COVID-19. However, a recent study published in the journal Cell Metabolism shows that patients who have good control over their blood glucose levels have a much better chance of surviving a bout of infection with COVID-19.

The study was carried out in Wuhan, a city in Hubei province in China, where the pandemic started. The trial involved collecting health data from 7,337 confirmed cases of COVID-19 who were admitted to 19 hospitals in Hubei. A total of 952 of these patients had T2D, of whom 282 had well-controlled blood glucose levels.

The study found that patients admitted to hospital with T2D and coronavirus needed more medical assistance and intervention than persons without underlying medical conditions. T2D patients were also more likely to die or experience the degradation of vital organs.

The study also found that T2D patients who had well controlled blood glucose levels were less likely to require medical intervention and/or ventilation. In addition, those who were controlling their glucose levels properly were significantly less likely to die and much more likely to improve their COVID-19 health outcomes compared to those who had poor control of their blood glucose levels.

So, as you can see, the answer to the question is very simple… keeping your blood glucose levels under control will give you a much better chance of surviving if you do become infected.

If ever there was an incentive for diabetics to get their act together and start beating their diabetes this must be it. Perhaps it is about time we stop being blasé about this silent killer and begin following a low-sugar, low-fat diet.

Research into the relationship between type 2 diabetes and various coronaviruses is ongoing.

Paul D Kennedy is a type 2 diabetic. He used his skills as an international consultant and researcher to find a way to beat his diabetes using diet alone and, about eight years ago, he stopped taking medications to control his blood glucose levels. You can find out more from beating-diabetes.com or by contacting Paul at paul@beating-diabetes.com. His book Beating Diabetes is available as a Kindle e-book or a printed book from Amazon. The printed edition is also available from Create Space online book store.

Shameful Depravity

more than 700,000 rape cases yearly!

Violent Towards Women

Shamefully, violent towards women is increasing in alarming rate! They rage from domestic abuse, girl-child abuse, physical assault, sexual assault, rape and murder,

The victims should be given time to heal and recover from the pain and trauma of been raped. And when they open or speak up please we should stand with them, support them, care for them and not criticize for not speaking earlier. There is no right timing for cases like this, they deserve the right to heal, recover and relate their ordeal to their loved ones. The society should urged women to speak up and say an emphatic NO to rape and any other abuse of all kinds, especially to the girl child.  And when they do, we should be ready to support and stand with them and not against them; they should be loved and cared for in the society. Also the perpetrators’ should be punished for  

My heart goes to all those suffering in silence that have to go through this ordeals without anyone to share it to for fear of been judged, why don’t you take a step today and speak out  we love you, I love you and your country also loves you and I personally am with you guys.

Am proud to be a woman, a female and a girl child.
