Diabetes drug linked to reduced risk of severe Covid-19 outcomes: Study
A type of drug already used to treat obesity and Type 2 diabetes is associated with a reduced risk of hospitalisation, respiratory complications and death in COVID-19 patients with Type 2 diabetes, when taken six months prior to diagnosis with the viral disease, according to a study.
Researchers at Penn State College of Medicine in the US analysed electronic medical records of nearly 30,000 patients with type 2 diabetes who had a positive laboratory test for SARS-CoV-2 between January and September 2020.
The study, published in the journal Diabetes on Tuesday, concluded that the drugs, called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor (GLP-1R) agonists, should be further evaluated for potential protective effects against COVID-19 complications.
