Abstract

Background: The present study aims to compare and assess the blood sugar level among post COVID patients with diabetes patient and non diabetic clients in Saveetha Medical College and Hospital. Material and Methods: The quantitative approach with comparative study was conducted in host institution of Saveetha Medical College and Hospital. A total of 30 participants were recruited using Non-probability convenient sampling technique based on the inclusion criteria, the demographic and clinical data was collected by using structured questionnaire and the HbA1c test was used to assess the blood sugar level among the patients during post COVID period of time. Result: The outcome results identified that the mean score of HbA1c among post COVID diabetic patients was 9.82±3.22 and the mean score of HbA1c among post COVID non-diabetic patients was 5.83±3.32. The mean difference score was 3.99. The calculated Student Independent ‘t’ test value of t = 3.345 was found to be statistically significant t p<0.001 level. This clearly infers that there was significant difference in the level of HbA1c among post COVID diabetic and non-diabetic patients in which post COVID diabetic patients had elevated HbA1c level than the non-diabetic patients. Conclusion: This study concluded that there was significant difference in the blood sugar level among the post COVID diabetic patients and non diabetic patients. Overall, the understanding of Post COVID Syndrome is improving however further research is needed for future references .In particular, patients with diabetes would require care in glycemic and risk factor control to prevent the development and severity of Post COVID Syndrome. Data on bidirectional adverse effects of diabetes and PCS are clearly needed.
