Does being overweight or obese affect how ill people get?
Being obese is known to increase the risk of a number of diseases, including heart disease, cancer and type 2 diabetes.
The more overweight you are, the more fat you’re carrying, the less fit you are and the lower your lung capacity.
This means it is a bigger struggle to get oxygen into the blood and around the body. This impacts on the heart and blood flow too.
That is one reason why overweight and obese people in intensive care are more likely to need assistance with breathing and support with kidney function.
How to be healthy
The best way is to eat a healthy, balanced diet and exercise regularly. Fast walking, jogging and cycling are good options, even with social distancing measures in force, avoid situations where you could be tempted to overeat.
