Children, Cold Flu Viruses, Covid 19 and Type 1 Diabetes

Studies from the UK, the United States and Germany point to a raised risk of developing diabetes after coronavirus infection. Results suggest people who’ve had coronavirus are between 31% and 166% more likely to later develop diabetes compared to people who haven’t had the virus. …. A study presented at the European Association for the Study of Diabetes (EASD) annual meeting by Norwegian researchers suggests that the risk of developing new-onset type 1 diabetes is significantly elevated among children and adolescents, more than 30 days after an infection with COVID-19.

The vast majority of young people who get COVID-19 will not go on to develop type 1 diabetes.

The reason for the increased risk of developing type 1 diabetes in children after being infected by cold flu viruses or Covid 19.

Very young children are in the process of developing motor skills. Breathing skill is part of human motor skills and is undivided from neuro-biomechanics. Developing motor skills along with breathing skills are more sensitive to cough biomechanics. Coughing interrupts the development of early motor skills. In persons (very young children) with improper or delayed motor skills development, persistent cough for a prolonged time negatively affects the existing breathing skills and already acquired general motor skills.
The adverse changes in general motor skills, particularly the negative changes in breathing biomechanics, cause the development of Type 1 diabetes in young children after covid 19 or common cold flu infection.
It indicates that the appropriate development of early motor skills guards against Type 1 diabetes.

COVID-19 contributing not only to the development but also to the severity of DKA.

For effective treatment and cure of Type 1 diabetes and Type 2 diabetes, it needs to develop a therapeutic-biomechanics program involving physical and occupational therapy that will gradually produce a lasting change in habitually breathing biomechanics.

Certain physical activities negatively affect early motor skills development. The author’s book “Locomotor Skills and Postural Control Weight Loss Exercises” with the subtitle: “Ancient Greek and New Calisthenics – Beauty and Strength Exercises”, extensively describes the physical activities that negatively affect early motor skills development.
