COVID-19: Increase in cases of metabolic syndrome, deleterious effect of lockdowns and social isolation.

Long-lasting negative impacts on human health and aging are to be expected.

The impact of lockdowns and social isolation on eating behaviors has already caused damage to metabolic status in many subjects.

Numerous studies (1) show a negative effect on eating behavior: decrease in the consumption of vegetables, increase in the consumption of sugary products, etc. These poor nutritional behaviors have led to an increase in weight gain in many populations.

These weight gains, aggravated by the lack of exercise associated with social isolation, were particularly pronounced in subjects who were already overweight or obese (2).

In addition, lockdown had a very significant impact on mental health, (an increase of about 50% in subjects suffering from mental disorders according to an English study (3)) with also the effect of overeating and weight gain.

It is now reasonable to predict that lockdowns and social isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic will induce nutritional deficiencies that will have a lasting negative impact on human health and aging.

[Glycation is one of the major causes of aging. Resulting from the fixation of sugars on the proteins constituting the organism, glycation generates toxic compounds that cause cellular aging. Glycation is particularly involved in metabolic disorders, skin aging and cognitive decline.]
