The French diabetology network CORONADO (CORONAvirus SARS-Cov2 & Diabetes Outcomes) has just published new results in Diabetologia (the journal of the European Association for the Study of Diabetes, EASD) on the outcome of diabetic patients hospitalised for COVID-19 in spring 2020.

This observational study, supported by Nantes University Hospital and coordinated by Professors Bertrand Cariou and Samy Hadjadj, diabetologists in the Endocrinology, Diabetology and Nutrition Department of l’Institut du Thorax (University of Nantes – Inserm – Nantes University Hospital – CNRS), showed that factors associated with returning home within 28 days of admission included the absence of diabetes complications and younger age.
