New research has found that symptoms, like brain fog, may be the result of a long COVID brain injury which may lead to cognitive and mental health issues that persist for years. The researchers stated that long COVID-19 can cause… Read More »Evidence indicates long COVID could be a brain injury
A CDC study highlights the growing public health issue of long COVID, which has caused over 3,500 U.S. deaths since January 2020. Despite vaccines reducing complications, long COVID has no cure, and deaths may increase as other COVID-19 fatalities decline. Long COVID deaths, mainly among the elderly, represent a significant and rising risk factor.
Recent research compared COVID-19 vaccine recipients with unvaccinated individuals who had breakthrough infections, showing significantly lower risks of long-term health issues in the vaccinated group. Long-COVID symptoms, including hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease, were reduced by 65-79% in the vaccinated group after 90 days, indicating the vaccine’s long-term benefits.
A newly published paper highlights that individuals experiencing rare but prolonged adverse effects from the COVID-19 vaccine often exhibit neurological symptoms, a phenomenon termed “long vax”. Despite anti-vaccine activism seizing this study as leverage, the study reaffirms the vaccine’s safety as “long vax” occurrence is significantly lower compared to long COVID-19.
A new study out of Denmark showed that more than half of people with severe cases of long COVID failed to improve after a year and a half.
New research from the CDC shows that Long COVID rarely affects children but appears to affect around 7% of adults.
New research from the CDC shows that about 16% of individuals that contract COVID-19 will experience symptoms 12 months later.
Several extensive, well-conducted studies published in peer-reviewed journals show that vaccines reduce the risk of long COVID-19.
Long COVID has a lot of health consequences, but it appears to be linked to hair loss and sexual dysfunction in men.
A new peer-reviewed study shows that COVID-19 patients who were treated in an intensive care unit (ICU) exhibited physical, mental, and cognitive effects a year after treatment. This study shows the long COVID effects are serious and not something that should be ignored.
Of course, the fact that patients who survive COVID-19 in the ICU may live with non-trivial symptoms is even more evidence that the vaccine is a prudent and smart choice.
So, all of you who know my style of writing, I’m going to review this new article giving you the highlights in data with a bit of commentary about the limitations of the study along with what it may tell us. Here we go.Read More »COVID ICU patients show physical, mental, cognitive effects after a year
