New Delhi/ 23 March 2021: Older adults and people with underlying health conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease, are more vulnerable to developing a severe case of COVID-19. But, even if we feel healthy, just being heavily overweight can increase the risk of severe illness as well. Obesity is the number one risk factor for developing a severe case of COVID-19 in people under the age of 55. Obesity is quite prevalent, but it’s also important to know if the weight of our body is putting us at risk for COVID 19, as well as other health conditions.
A person is considered to be obese if he or she has more body fat than what’s considered healthy for his or her height. A quick measurement called body mass index (BMI) is used as a screening tool for obesity. People having a BMI of 30 or higher increases a person’s risk of developing a severe case of COVID-19 by 27%, and a BMI of 40 or higher doubles a person’s risk. People who are obese seem to benefit less from vaccination than people who are at a healthy weight. Since the chronic state of inflammation brought on by obesity interferes with the immune system’s ability to learn from a vaccine.
To fill this gap and save the people from obesity at the time of pandemic, OSS Infocom, the exclusive importer and authorized distributor for LetsBfit Wellness Inc., Canada has recently launched eOnz Elite Smart Health scales. It is available in two models – Health Scale & Health Scale+ with a Special Introductory Price of Rs. 1990/- & Rs 2490/- respectively on all leading e-commerce platforms like amazon, Flipkart, TataCliQ, Paytm Mall, Snapdeal and at LetsBfit (https://www.letsbfit.in/).
