The Global Covidiab Registry, new-onset diabetes, and the Covid-19 Pandemic

Philip Bergman and Paul Zimmet

In early 2020, there were sporadic reports on new-onset diabetes, both type 1 and type 2, in both children and adults with SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) infection. To date, all studies on the subject have been limited by small sample sizes and the fact a diagnosis of COVID-19 could not always be confirmed. In order to address these limitations, an International group of leading diabetes researchers set up a global registry of Covid-19–related diabetes, Its aim is to establish the extent, natural history and longer term outcomes of new-onset diabetes in the context of the pandemic.

The Registry is now accepting data on new diabetes from major centres around the world including countries including the USA, UK, Brazil, India and Africa where the pandemic is at its height.  It is important for national and international medical colleagues, and  community and key organizations like ISPAD to encourage the lodging of information on COVID-19-related diabetes on the Global Covidiab  Registry. 

We invite and encourage you to do so. The information gained can be very important, particularly for children and adolescents informing  on prevention, clinical practice, and public health strategies during the course of this pandemic and beyond. It is extremely important to improve understanding of the relationship between SARS-Cov2 and diabetes as we face inevitable new outbreaks of COVID-19 in the future.
