This COVID risk factor is under your control

This COVID risk factor is under your control

  If the last year has taught us one thing, it’s that having underlying co-morbidities with COVID dramatically increases your risk of serious complications, hospitalization and even death.  The “three biggies” here are high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes. But the common denominator underlying all of these is insulin resistance.  Insulin resistance drives up your blood glucose level, triggering diabetes as well as stirring up the inflammation in your blood vessels that contributes to high...

This “fearless foursome” protects against COVID

  Over the last year, it has become abundantly clear that there is a nasty new respiratory virus in our midst, joining the ranks of pneumonia, influenza, bronchitis, croup, Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), and H1N1, among others.  And while the COVID-19 virus (aka SARS-CoV-2) is “new” to us, viruses in general have been around since the dawn of time.  Believe it or not, currently there are about 200 different viruses hanging around that could potentially...

A COVID-19 risk factor you can avoid

A COVID-19 risk factor you can avoid

  One of the biggest factors that has emerged that exponentially increases someone’s risk of complications from COVID-19 is the presence of diabetes. It should be no surprise.  Diabetes impairs your body’s functioning from head to toe, and has a very long resume of the health problems it causes or worsens.  COVID-19 is just another checkmark on the list. But the glimmer of hope here is that in many cases of diabetes are very PREVENTABLE! ...
