Obesity or metabolic syndrome is turning out to be a vulnerability for COVID (lessons we are now learning from New Orleans)! We are considering all obese patients of ours to be at risk and we are educating them about early signs of the disease.
At the earliest sign we start treatment!
We initiate antibiotics and anti-viral immediately. We don’t wait for the test to come out positive to start treatment!
This way, we have prevented many of our patients from having to go to the hospital and become a burden to the system.
