Pneumonia caused by Coronavirus Disease (Covid-19) first appeared in Wuhan. Diabetes mellitus becomes one of the main risk factors for a person infected with the Covid-19 virus because it is susceptible to infection. Chronic complications in the form of diabetic nephropathy caused by diabetes can also increase the severity and mortality in diabetic patients infected with the Covid-19 virus. This study aims to determine the clinical overview of ureum levels in Covid-19-infected diabetes mellitus patients treated at Efarina Pangkalan Kerinci Hospital. This study was conducted from July to September 2021 at the Laboratory of Efarina Pangkalan Kerinci Hospital. This type of research is descriptive analytics. This examination uses a light intensity measurement method using an autoanalizer with a sample of 30 samples taken at random. The results of the examination of ureum levels in Diabetic Mellitus patients infected with the Covid-19 pandemic at Efarina Pangkalan Kerinci Hospital obtained results that increased by 13 samples (43%) and normal ureum levels by as many as 17 samples (57%). For this reason, patients are advised to conduct regular health checks, eat healthy foods and comply with the 5M health protocol to prevent the transmission of the Covid-19 virus.
