Congratulations Dr. Jayesh Kalbhande for the paper - Titled - Use of insulin in COVID-19: A proposal to explore possibilities. A GOOD INITIATIVE. Hope- it finds a space in medical fraternity by randomized trials on patients. But hindrance is that it will be difficult to find subjects for the trials on COVID-19 patients- considering certain administrative hiccups. The only way is you can try on few COVID-19 patients- if you have access to them . As of now - we as general practitioners and surgeons - do not interfere with the Govt .protocol of COVID-19 positive patients- even if asymptomatic and refer to Govt .run institutions
