Today I want to talk about COVID-19 (the coronavirus) and why certain underlying health conditions put you at a higher risk.
Pre-existing health problems and increased COVID 19 mortality rates:
1. Cardiovascular — 13.2%
2. Diabetes — 9.2%
3. Chronic respiratory — 8.0%
4. Hypertension— 8.4%
5. Cancer — 7.6%
If a person doesn’t have any of these pre-existing health problems, the mortality rate is 0.9%. But, if a person has underlying health conditions, the death rate can increase significantly.
The way the virus penetrates the cell is through a receptor interaction. The little spikes that come off of the coronavirus connect to the ACE2 receptor opening the door to the cell, where they can go in and create damage.
People with the above health conditions have a much higher concentration of the ACE2 receptors. But there is another condition that has a higher concentration of these receptors, and it’s called insulin resistance. Another thing that’s interesting is that in a lot of cases, people with cardiovascular problems, diabetes, hypertension, and cancer, also have insulin resistance. It’s possible that improving insulin resistance may help with these conditions.
