Covid-19: its metabolic consequences and predisposing factors

Published 21 May, 2022


Individuals with obesity and metabolic syndrome appear to have been particularly susceptible to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2 or Covid-19). It has also been proposed that Covid-19 is impacting the development of new onset diabetes mellitus. Furthermore, societal responses to the pandemic have led to changing patterns of behaviour and lifestyle. An understanding of the causes of the association between Covid-19 and metabolic syndrome may provide insights into how we can better manage susceptible individuals to prevent serious disease.

Topics covered:

  • The impact of Covid-19 on new onset diabetes
  • The effects of Covid-19 on biochemical and anthropometric factors associated with metabolic syndrome
  • Features of metabolic syndrome associated with an increased susceptibility to Covid-19 infection
  • Mechanisms leading to increased susceptibility to Covid-19 infection and its complications
  • How Covid-19 infection affects behavioural and lifestyle factors,including diet and physical activity
