Snippet from FEMERAID International Air Rescue as of 29 March 2022
The Air Rescue Team of FEMERAID International informs all our members, Knights and Dames of the Sovereign Order of Saint John of Jerusalem, Knights of Malta, Federation of the Autonomous Priories (KMFAP) about the followings:

According to a study published this week in the Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology, COVID-19 appears to raise the risk for people in developing diabetes within the next year. The results show that COVID-19 increased the risk of diabetes by 59%, even for people who were not overweight, and by 38% amongst those with the lowest diabetes risk.

This was a very large study based on records from more than 8 million people and from 180,000 previously infected with COVID-19. The risk of developing diabetes was higher for people with more severe cases of COVID-19; those who have been hospitalized or in the ICU. However, it showed that even people with mild cases had a higher risk of developing diabetes than those who did not have

COVID-19. COVID-19-related increases in diabetes incidence could lead to unprecedented cases of diabetes worldwide. The link between COVID-19 and diabetes is unknown and likely to vary from person to person.

Keep safe.
