The results of a new scientific study conducted at the University of Alabama show that the drug used in the treatment of diabetes with metformin active ingredient can reduce deaths due to Covid-19 disease. Providing information on the subject, Dr. Yüksel Büküşoğlu said:
“According to the results of this very recent scientific research, this drug with the active ingredient metformin we use in the treatment of diabetes can reduce deaths due to COVID-19 up to three times. Although this extremely important and beneficial effect of the drug with the active ingredient metformin was first shown in diabetic patients, the same effect continues even in patients with obesity, hypertension, chronic kidney disease, heart failure, and death caused by COVID-19 with metformin use. The reduction in risk is thought to be generalizable to all other individuals and age groups in the same way. It is thought that this effect may be related to the effects of metformin preventing the inflammatory reaction and preventing the formation of clots ”.
Dr. Yüksel Büküşoğlu added, "These results suggest that metformin can provide a protective approach in people at high risk for Coronavirus Covid-19 disease."
Dr. Yüksel Büküşoğlu said, “In order to prevent the complications caused by the corona virus, the vitamin D deficiency in the body must be corrected immediately, and the intestinal flora must also be healthy; For this purpose, it is important to remember that it is also very important to consume fermented foods rich in probiotics such as homemade yogurt, pickles, kefir, etc.
Finally, Dr. Yüksel Büküşoğlu said that Stem Cell therapy can also be extremely beneficial in cases of respiratory failure and severe lung damage due to severe Coronavirus Covid-19 infection.
