Is the fear of getting the Coronavirus enough to get you to try to lose weight?  For many it is.

We have all heard how the Coronavirus seriously affects people who have other kinds of medical issues - including diabetes.

We also know that people with type 1 diabetes don't produce insulin while people with type 2 diabetes don't respond to insulin as well as they should and later in the disease often don't make enough insulin.

And by know most of us know that type 2 can be controlled with diet and exercise.

The website webmd puts it this way: "While certain lifestyle changes are key to managing diabetes, whether you can actually turn back time so that it's like you never had diabetes is a different matter. That depends on how long you've had the condition, how severe it is, and your genes.  For some people, reaching a healthier weight will mean taking fewer medications, or in rarer cases, no longer needing those medications at all."

All that being said, it's no surprise that a new study found two thirds of those surveyed are looking to make health improvements for a number of reasons.

The main motivations for these changes include getting a good night’s sleep, keeping up with kids, and reducing their risk of contracting COVID. Four in 10 adults also believe adopting a healthier lifestyle will prevent development of underlying health conditions such as weight gain and obesity .
