On the wake of the rising COVID-19 cases, diabetic patients are most at risk, according to experts. There have also been cases of high blood sugar after corona in many places. In addition, many diabetics are at risk for coronary heart disease

Corona has serious side effects in patients with diabetes, so doctors advise such patients to take the corona vaccine immediately. Diabetic patients are at risk for many other diseases, including corona or black fungus. In such a situation, many are questioning whether the vaccine should be taken immediately.

Experts say that the corona vaccine boosts the body's immune system. Some side effects may be felt after the vaccine, but it does not raise blood sugar.

AIIMS Bhopal Director Dr. According to Sarman Singh, citizens with blood sugar should also be vaccinated. Vaccines have nothing to do with blood sugar. But, whether vaccinated or not, blood sugar should be the target.

Since vaccines have nothing to do with blood sugar, experts are urging people to get vaccinated as soon as possible. A third wave of corona is expected in August-September, so everyone should get vaccinated early.

The second wave was more terrifying than the first wave of the corona. The second wave caused a large number of infections and deaths. Now that the possibility of a third wave has been raised, experts are advising to take both doses of the vaccine before then.

Vaccines are essential for patients with diabetes. The vaccine has nothing to do with diabetes, but people with diabetes may experience pain for a few days at the injection site.

Patients with diabetes have a higher risk of coronary heart disease, but they are also more likely to develop other illnesses. That's why experts advise such people to control their diabetes.
