A meta-analysis published on April 28, 2021, based on 22 studies conducted by researchers at the German Diabetes Center, found men with diabetes were 28% more likely to die from COVID-19 than diabetic women were.

And, people with diabetes aged over 65 with diabetes were more than three times more likely to die than younger patients were.

Professor Michael Roden, a scientific director and board member of the German Diabetes Center, said in a related press statement, "These results will help classify individuals with diabetes even better to improve their therapy and mitigate the course."
