Core Tip During the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) era, multiple studies have shown that outpatient insulin use was a bad prognosticator for COVID-19-induced acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). After the use of greedy propensity matching to balance multiple confounders, this study demonstrated that outpatient insulin use has no impact on non-COVID-19-induced ARDS compared to the use of other anti-hyperglycemic agents in type 2 diabetes patients. The outcomes evaluated were mortality, length of stay, duration of intubation, cost of stay, and acute kidney injury. These findings raise a lot of unanswered questions on the relationship between diabetes and acute lung injury outcomes.
