Abstract:   (65 Views)
Type 1 diabetes mellitus is one of the chronic diseases which timely and correct management impacts the outcome of these patients. Covid-19 is an acute respiratory infection that has created a disproportionate situation for individuals and healthcare systems. The resulting pandemic is associated with delayed presentation of patients as well as increased frequency and severity of acute complications. The purpose of this review article is to study and compare the incidence, initial presentation, frequency and severity of diabetic ketoacidosis as well as changes of demographic findings such as age and sex among children and adolescents of newly diagnosed Type 1 diabetes mellitus during the pandemic. This review indicates that there is no clear evidence for increasing incidence of type 1 diabetes mellitus, the frequency and severity of diabetic ketoacidosis, female gender, and disease onset at younger age during the pandemic than pre-pandemic period. Further studies with larger sample sizes are needed to better understand the role of pandemics on disease incidence and acute complications.
