Diabetes and Heart Disease: Myths and Facts!

It is not sure that, every diabetic patient is undergone, heart disease.  Diabetes  is a chronic disease that is caused by high blood glucose levels that result from the body’s inability to produce insulin or inefficiency in response. Poor  metabolism , weaker immune system, and reduced physical inactivity are majorly seen in diabetes patients. It is well known that, in diabetes patients, one of the major complications is Heart disease, but as compared to other complications, diabetic heart disease owns only about 20-30%. As diabetes complications possess 5% more risk of developing  brain stroke , whereas it possesses 30% more risk for developing kidney disease (diabetic nephropathy), 40% more for developing blindness (Retinopathy), and others are for amputation and associated complications. Now we will find out some Myths and facts regarding Diabetic Heart Disease:  ·         If you control diabetes, you are safe at heart health! Controlling Diabetes may not assure your heart hea

Does SARS-CoV-2 overwhelm Early DKD patients?

In diabetic kidney disease patients, there is a weaker immune system and poor metabolic function in the body. Hence the  Strain 2 COVID  deaths were increasing till the day with unknown symptoms. The major reason behind this is, the new strain SARS-CoV-2 uses the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) for entry into the host cells. Using Bayesian integrative Analysis, a large collection of public-omics datasets identifies the molecular network includes  ACE2 -expressing proximal tubular in diabetic kidney disease. If there is a positive angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) in diabetic kidney disease patients, it may overlap with the expression pattern seen in the SARS-CoV-2 infected cells and overwhelm the patient's condition. And the treatment for SARS-CoV-2 infected patients with  chronic kidney diseases  is still unclear.      The SARS-CoV-2 virus changes very slowly than the other viruses. This virus transmission can occur through direct or indirect contact with the infect
