The waist fats are very difficult to melt, and people who have protruding bellies are up to 75% more likely to have serious Coronavirus disease. This was revealed in a new medical study that found patients with COVID-19 need more care.
Research in Italy has found that excess fat around the abdomen and waist increases the risk of serious complications in patients with COVID-19 more than overall body fat.
In fact, oily fat not only makes COVID-19 worse, but previous research reports have found that this extra fat can increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and coronary heart disease.
Earlier research reports had found a link between obesity and severe severity of COVID-19. However, not much work was done on the intensity of the waist fats and the COVID-19.
The new study looked at obesity as well as the abdominal and lumbar spine and body weight in a variety of ways. To this purpose, 219 patients undergoing treatment at COVID-19 in Hospital were examined and chest X-rays (CXR) were used to determine the severity of the disease.
The CXR score was divided into 3 lung zones and 8 scores for high intensity. The study found that the average CXR score for obese patients was 9, while for obese people (those who do not develop waist fats) the score was 6.
Research has shown that people with waist fat have a higher risk of lung asthma and lack of oxygen. The researchers said that the severity of the disease could be predicted in patients with COVID-19. He added that for the treatment of such patients in the hospital, their abdominal and lumbar spine should be examined and closely monitored.
