Coronavirus New Variant: The highly contagious Omicron variant is causing large numbers of young children to be infected in the US and the number of such children admitted to hospitals has reached record levels. Meanwhile, America’s top health agency Center for Disease Control (CDC) has said in a new major and important study that children who have corona (Corona) have diabetes after the infection is cured. is in danger of being developed.
Experts say that this is a very important information and medical workers should take care of it while taking care of infected children. According to experts, health workers should check for symptoms of diabetes in people under the age of 18 who have had corona infection. These symptoms include nausea, vomiting, frequent urination, increased thirst, increased appetite, weight loss, fatigue and abdominal pain.
Children at risk of diabetes after corona infection
The CDC has released a report stating that children who had corona have a higher risk of developing diabetes after infection than children who did not have any other non-corona infection.
Diabetes was already known to increase a person’s risk of becoming infected with the corona and to make the symptoms of diabetes worse. But the new study shows a clear link between catching the virus in non-diabetic children and subsequently developing a new disease as a result.
Diabetes problem 30 days after corona virus infection
The CDC report says that 30 days after corona virus infection, new problems of diabetes are likely to arise in people under the age of 18 years. After studying a database of health insurance claims and diagnosis data from the past year, CDC researchers found that children who had coronavirus were 166 percent more likely to be diagnosed with diabetes. In children who did not get corona, this risk was found to be only 31 percent.
The CDC has acknowledged that one percent of new diabetes cases are likely to occur in children who were prediabetic at the time they became infected. It is not yet clear what role the virus plays in causing diabetes and whether corona-borne diabetes is permanent or temporary. The CDC warns doctors to be cautious.
A large number of small children are getting infected
In America, corona infection is spreading very much among children under the age of 5 years and the number of children of this age being admitted to the hospital has reached the highest level.
CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Valensky has said that the current situation suggests that to protect very young children, it is necessary that older children and adults must get the vaccine. The highly contagious Omicron has been spreading rapidly across the country since mid-December. The rate of hospitalization among underage children has increased from 2.5 per 100,000 children to more than 4 per 100,000 children. According to CDC figures, the rate for children ages 5 to 17 is about 1 per 100,000.
