A new study has shown that adults with low weight or obesity suffer from hospitalizations regarding influenza or similar diseases.

Within the Observatory, 4,778 patients hospitalized and outpatient patients have infectious diseases, that is, the medical diagnosis of influenza or other illnesses. Common symptoms, such as fever, coldness, discomfort, dry cough, loss of appetite, body pain and dizziness.

778 patients (16.3%) had a positive effect on the flu, 2,636 (55.2%) of viral pathogens and 1,364 (28.5%), were not isolated in the respiratory system. Adults with flu should be exacerbated, except obese obesity or obese obesity, compared to normal weight for adults.

The adult obesity subtype of the H1N1 flu has an increase in hospitalization probability six times higher than compared to sub-basal H3N2 and B compared to normal weight adults. In adults with coronavirus, metapneumovirus, parainfluenza and rhinovirus, low-weight participants should worsen with older adults. It has a similarity between influenza-like diseases, low weight or obesity and hospitalization.

According to the researchers, the National Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases of the United States and several Mexican centers, including the National Pediatric Institute, have the risk of suffering from any of these diseases "U" At both ends people may experience serious discomfort in the development of the disease, compared to normal weight.

The discovery indicates that a patient's mass index index (BMI) must be taken into account in order to assess the risk of developing a serious illness for a patient's illness and to determine a possible treatment.
