COVID-19 and Hyperglycemia in Non-Diabetic Adult Male with End Stage Kidney Disease Treated with Hemodialysis

The pandemic of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), a disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is causing substantial morbidity and mortality. Older age and presence of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and obesity significantly increases the risk for hospitalization and death in COVID-19.The risk factors for severe presentations are observed in patients where their immunity is impaired such as patient with end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) who are dialysis dependent. Preexisting diabetes can be out of control during the course of Covid-19 infection, however development of new oust of diabetes following the exposure of SARS-C0V-2 is rarely reported. Herewith, we report a case of a 62-year-old nondiabetic male with ESKD, secondary to hypertensive nephropathy who developed hyperglycemia after infected with Covid-19 disease.
