Obesity in adults is associated with an increased risk for influenza A (H1N1) infection, according to a study published in Clinical Infectious Diseases. Researchers did not find the same association with H3N2 susceptibility. “During the 2009 pandemic, obesity emerged as a risk factor for severe influenza. However, how obesity might affect influenza outcomes is less clear. One possibility is that obesity impacts severity — that is, obese people do not get influenza any more often, but when they get it, there is a higher rate of severe disease,” Aubree Gordon, PhD, a researcher.
