Obesity and Coronavirus: Staying Safe with At-Home Testing

Obesity and coronavirus have been demonstrated to be a dangerous combination and those who are obese should be especially aware. House Call Doctor Los Angeles reminds patients in high-risk categories to stay safe. This includes the elderly or those with compromised immune systems. Unfortunately, those struggling with their weight are also at a higher risk.

It’s well known that the coronavirus does not discriminate but obese people are more likely to suffer from serious complications even if they are relatively young. Even individuals who are only in their twenties and thirties are by no means completely excluded if they have serious weight problems.

Obesity is among the most common of all health issues so there’s nothing to be embarrassed about. It simply means that taking common-sense measures to guard against COVID-19 or, worse, a combination of COVID with influenza, is just that much more important. Flu shots are especially important if you are overweight.

Staying Safe Through COVID Testing

In addition to social distancing, getting flu shots, washing your hands regularly, and wearing a mask, getting tested for the novel virus if you may have been exposed or are feeling unwell is one of the best ways to ensure that you and your loved ones remain healthy and out of harm’s way. However, with medical clinics and testing sites often being overwhelmed, in addition to fears of being close to a large number of people, many individuals have felt discouraged from getting tested.
