"When the fatality was compared on the basis of vitamin D deficiency, the fatality rate was 21% (19 patients died in 90 patients) among vitamin D deficient and 3.1% (2 patient died in 64) among patients with normal vitamin D level."Do you have evidence for that claim?
I was, it was really awful hey... Nearly met my ancestors... BUT here I am. Doctors do amazing work. My diabetes made matters very complicated for me. Steaming daily saved the day, could feel my lungs thanking me after each steaming session. And the vitamins of course, my doctor used asthma medicine to keep my chest afloat, genius idea.
which inhaled steroids do you use? I'm wondering if I need another steroid course to further aid my lungs in this recovery.I was sick in Aug 2020, may have been Covid (Mk1), but there were few symptoms other than nomal cough. Lung infections tend to exacerbate asthma (often under-diagnosed), so bumping up my existing bronchodilator spray and inhaled steroids helped alleviate the post-viral phase. Palliative treatment should be standard practice...
I just came here to this thread now to ask how your boet was doing after going to hospital last week when you told us. So glad he is getting betterSo my boet was released last week after a week in hospital on oxygen.
But, now I had to have my daughter tested yesterday as she has 3 of the symptoms
YikesThanks. He's in bed at home. Says it took a big toll on his lungs.
Ive had a slightly tight chest for last few days, non stop, even when I go to sleep.
Never had that before
Nothing major, just annoying
I need to take a break from the booze a bit, leave my suiping for weekends only and see if it gets better
Damn you have kak sysmptomsHeadaches and especially loss of taste of smell ( restless sleeping ) were the signs for me.
I have what they call " long haul "covid, so the initial infection obviously did some minor/moderate damage to my lungs and heart which is not life threatening, got an nebuliser this week as I'm still struggling to breathe, sometimes it's good and sometimes it's bad - hence the nebuliser ( cortisone )
Been for x-rays, ECG's and what ever other scan known to man, nope, nothing, nada, zulch - nothing can be done but to stick it out and hope my body can fight it over the next few month if not years.
Im too scared to go for XRays and ECG's like you did.
