The relationship between Corona, diabetes and heart disease
This relationship between the emerging corona virus, diabetes and heart disease was talked about in the Chinese study, the results of which were published in the journal Nature Metabolism and conducted by researchers from the Chinese Military Academy of Medical Sciences.
Its results concluded that those who suffer from diabetes and heart disease often have high levels of cholesterol are the most people who show strong symptoms of the emerging corona virus.
The researchers found that the virus clings to cholesterol particles, which enables the virus to bind to inhibitors of the enzyme that converts angiotensin, which helps relax the veins and arteries to reduce blood pressure, which allows cell infection.
Preventing and neutralizing SR-B1 will prevent infection, which makes the mechanism of targeting the future a potential way to develop treatments for the epidemic in the future, according to the British newspaper, "Daily Mail".
The researchers believe that their study will benefit the most vulnerable to infection with the coronavirus, such as those who suffer from heart disease and diabetes, noting that previous studies had noted an increase in the death rate from Covid-19 among diabetics and those suffering from obesity.
For its part, the British National Health Service revealed that 29 percent of Corona patients have heart disease, and 19 percent have diabetes.
A previous study conducted by the British National Health Service in cooperation with "Imperial College" had revealed that type II diabetics are more than twice as likely to die from infection with Corona, compared to those without the disease.
