Several reports showed the likelihood of a relationship between COVID-19 infection and the onset and prognosis of diabetes mellitus (DM) of all types. A 73-year-old female patient who presented to the clinic with respiratory symptoms and was tested positive for COVID-19 and treated for the next three days. Despite having neither a known history of hyperglycemia nor a family history of diabetes, she was unconscious and suffering from polyuria and polydipsia when she was brought to the emergency department. Once her condition was successfully stabilized, she was sent home with COVID-19 medications and oral anti-diabetic therapy. After subsequent viral recovery and continued anti-diabetic medication, the patient was monitored for the following seven months. DM might be linked to the SARS-CoV-2 infection. Further research is necessary to prove a relationship between COVID-19 and newly-onset diabetes.
