Abstract

Background and purpose: The SARS-CoV-2 can increase blood levels of D-dimer by causing thrombosis and affecting the homeostasis system. This study aimed at investigating the blood levels of D-Dimer and its relationship with the incidence of headache in patients with type 2 diabetes infected with COVID-19 who were admitted to Ilam Shahid Mostafa Hospital, Iran. Materials and methods: We studied the patients hospitalized in Ilam Shahid Mostafa Hospital. with COVID-19 (n=988) in two groups of with and without diabetes. Blood levels of D-dimer, and glucose, and also the incidence of headache were evaluated in all patients. Results: Fasting blood sugar levels, blood levels of D-dimer, white blood cell count, and ESR significantly increased in diabetic patients with COVID-19 compared with the non-diabetic patients (P<0.001). The incidence of headache was found to be significantly lower in diabetic patients than non-diabetic patients (n= 91, P= 0.0009). Conclusion: According to present research, there is an inverse relationship between the blood levels of D-dimer and incidence of headache in diabetic people with COVID-19, as by increase in blood levels of D-dimer the incidence of headache decreased. © 2023, Mazandaran University of Medical Sciences.
