Sure. As in gasping for air after a few tries.
Wow. I don't gasp for air. I just can't get it to blow up. :)

How prevalent is this? Is it correlated to severity or mild/asymptomatic infections can result in this at equal rates?
Considering that the person in the article was on a vent for 31 days, I would say yes.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

I just spoke to someone who claims COVID-19 made his wife diabetic. Are there any other such claims/anecdotes going around?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Are there really regular people who have issues blowing up a balloon? I always thought I just never learned how to do it right.
If the balloon isn't inflating, the problem is not enough pressure. You are most likely blowing from air stored in your cheeks and not directly from your lungs. Try it now without a balloon and feel the difference.
If you don't care why would you comment?

I have a friend who's part of Renewal (kidney transplant org) and he says that the transplants required numbers are up dramatically.

That makes perfect sense. I have issues in general with talking/singing. How do I teach myself to blow and breathe from my lungs?

Just be happy that you're not a blowhard.

That could be a totally different issue. It could be other reasons for kidney failure, and it could be existing DM being worsened.

I am talking about a brand new diagnosis of Diabetes as an outcome of COVID-19 infection/disease. This is the first time I heard about it, and given the personality of the source of this I am a little skeptical, so I am trying to find out if there are any such DP known.

Well, blowhards are always from a lack of knowledge.

It's a known phenomenon, I don't know how prevalent it is, and it may be too early to know.

Thanks for sharing that link. Seems like there's a lot of unknowns here.

Take singing lessons?  Or google "breathing lessons for singers" for the DIY version.

I wonder if she is overweight and hasn't seen a doctor for years until COVID.

Maybe it was diet changes since March?

Also possible. Less exercise under lockdown?

Would < 1 year of lifestyle change trigger Type 2?

I actually spoke to him again today and tried to figure out what was going on. He claims that she was getting regular checkups with her Dr. However, he also says that the diabetes was diagnosed during brief hospitalization for COVID-19. He didn't really seem to be aware of how diabetes manifests itself, so I wouldn't be surprised if she was borderline before and just got over the hump during covid.
