COVID-19 and Diabetes, What you should know

As we live through these unprecedented and difficult times, we at Rivas Medical Weight Loss are proud of the true heroism of our patients, staff, and all American citizens. We want to help you and your family preserve your health by eliminating pre-existing conditions that can aggravate the coronavirus.

Dr.Smith, founder of The Smith Center for Infectious Diseases and Urban Health, conducted a study on COVID-19 patients and found that of the 72 people in the study:

  • 21 Were Pre-diabetic
  • 34 were diabetic
  • The Average BMI of all severely ill patients was 30.7 

The more we see of this disease says Dr. Smith the more we see that severe rapid COVID Disease is found in diabetics, pre-diabetics, or people with a very high BMI.

You can beat the odds by being the healthiest you can be!
Healthy behaviors include :

  • Getting blood sugars in control
  • Getting enough sleep
  • Staying hydrated
  • Eating healthy (not overeating)
  • Getting adequate exercise
  • Maintaining a healthy weight 

Rivas Medical weight loss has years of experience in helping pre-diabetics and diabetics get their blood sugar and weight under control. Just one week of our weight loss program can make a serious impact on your blood sugar!

You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to be as healthy as can be. It may save our life.

I was a patient at the Frederick office and then my doctors left so I moved to the Hagerstown office. These group of wonderful people have great customer service skills and are a pleasure to speak to as well. I would recommend anyone who is looking to lose weight to go to them.
