Diabetics, keep these tips handy to protect yourself from Omicron

Health, according to the World Health Organization, is “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity”.[1] A variety of definitions have been used for different purposes over time. Health can be promoted by encouraging healthful activities, such as regular physical exercise and adequate sleep,[2] and by reducing or avoiding unhealthful activities or situations, such as smoking or excessive stress. Some factors affecting health are due to individual choices, such as whether to engage in a high-risk behavior, while others are due to structural causes, such as whether the society is arranged in a way that makes it easier or harder for people to get necessary healthcare services. Still other factors are beyond both individual and group choices, such as genetic disorders.

“People with diabetes have low levels of immunity pe se. They need to keep their sugar levels controlled, visit their doctors, take insulin as required, get themselves vaccinated,” says Dr. Viny Kantroo, Consultant Respiratory, Critical Care & Sleep Medicine at Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals in a YouTube LIVE session, adding, “they should be the ones who must take care of their weight and exercise regularly.”

Obesity can increase chances of getting severe disease in case of Covid-19 infection. The combination of obesity and diabetes is especially lethal. Dr Kantroo advises people with diabetes to keep their weight in check.

“Being obese is detrimental to your health including having severe kind of Covid 19 presentation. If you have more weight, you have more chances of getting Covid-19,” says the expert.

Your diet can also play a big role in preventing you from infections and diseases. An antioxidant-rich diet is recommended to ward off viruses.

Also, watch:

“Include antioxidants like nuts, fruits and salads in your diet. Antioxidants basically prevent new kind of damages to your DNA – the chemicals that are produced inside your body – and per se to your immunity,” says Dr Kantroo.

She advises a handful of nuts which is about 30 gm or 1 ounce per day for adults and children to ward off infections and diseases.

“Please take care of your health and health conditions. If you are on inhalers, insulin or any kind of treatment for your underlying conditions, please take them on time and meet your doctors and take their advice,” concludes Dr Kantroo.
