The COVID-19 pandemic has forced Dr. Nalawadi and her staff to re-think how they manage their day to day life and health. Clearly, patients who have had complications from COVID-19 have shown worse prognosis with comorbidities like obesity and diabetes. As a result, it’s a good time to get one’s metabolic health assessed in order to take control or act right away to reverse or stop the progression of such conditions. Studies have shown even a 5% decrease in body weight will significantly decrease the comorbidities.
If you are not sure about your risk factors and want to get your metabolic health assessed or not sure if you are on the right path with your diet and fitness regimen, please call Dr. Nalawadi’s office and make an appointment. They will take all precautions and space out each visit to avoid unnecessary exposure.
