Respiratory viruses are associated with more severe symptoms and complications in diabetic subjects. We hypothesize that the diabetic neuropathy could provide a signifcant contribution to risk of disease severity. The diabetic neuropathy and the autonomic dysfunction might determine the loss of immune response regulation and contribute to reduction of pulmonary function, in particular gas exchange.

Abstract

Respiratory viruses are associated with more severe symptoms and complications in diabetic subjects. We hypothesize that the diabetic neuropathy could provide a signifcant contribution to risk of disease severity. The diabetic neuropathy and the autonomic dysfunction might determine the loss of immune response regulation and contribute to reduction of pulmonary function, in particular gas exchange.
