Doctors are now urging Covid patients who’re recovering at home to keep monitoring blood glucose levels. The monitoring, the experts said, should continue after recovery and even if people are not diabetic. The advisory comes after sporadic reports of mucormycosis — a fungal infection seen in many who’ve recovered from Covid — among those who were not hospitalised and not administered steroids. Elevated blood sugar level is a factor that increases risk of mucormycosis.
