  5. "Diabetes is a heavy disease."

"Diabetes is a heavy disease."

Translation:Diabetul este o boală grea.

December 6, 2017



Serious might be a better translation for grea than heavy when referring to a disease.


Hello Duolingo, you just cannot say "heavy disease" in English, it makes no sense. You can say "hard", "tough" or "difficult". "Heavy" is normally used just with weight, apart from a few idioms like "with a heavy heart" meaning 'sadly and reluctantly'. (Native speaker)


You could say grav, which means it is grave/serious. (Or grava in this case, sorry for the missing accent).
