Introduction: Recently emerging data suggests a direct correlation detected between elevated glucose levels and coronavirus infection. The parallel occurrence of these two disease entities calls for further probe in order to define investigation protocols and management strategy. Cases: In this review we report 3 coronavirus patients who presented with new onset diabetes and ketoacidosis. The reports and biochemical markers of these patients were recorded and evaluated. Results: Two of the 3 patients were newly diagnosed both for SARS-COV-2 and diabetes mellitus. The third patient was a known case of Diabetes Mellitus and had presented with diabetes ketoacidosis. All these patients responded well to the treatment and were discharged in a stable condition. Conclusion: These cases suggest a strong interplay between glucose metabolism and coronavirus infection. A thorough understanding of this mechanism is crucial in the management of such patients especially those with asymptomatic coronavirus infection.
