Abstract
Objective To evaluate glycemic levels and other metabolic indices during pre- and post-COVID-19 periods among the type-2 diabetes patients. Methods A cross sectional observational study was conducted in Ramesh hospital, Guntur, India. The purposive sample was collected in the medical ward to evaluate the glycemic consistency during pre and post covid time. Results A total of 50 diabetics subjects’ data were collected, of which 31(62%) were retrospective and 19(38%) were prospective. Nearly, 80% of the subjects are age ranges from 41-60 years. The duration of diabetes was 8.19 ±6.70 years. The majority of subjects were overweight. A significant glycemic difference was noticed between pre and post covid, glycemic parameters such as fasting, postprandial glucose levels and glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) (P <0.05). Conclusion Glycemic parameters are significantly increased while comparing pre and post covid. There is a strong association between steroid use and secondary infections, as well as elevated blood sugar levels.

Key words: Glycemic parameters, COVID-19, Secondary infections, Steroids
