Different vitamins, minerals play an imperative role in muscle strength generation. It is also an exceptionally important aspect of the immune system. Therefore, according to many nutritionists, a person recovering from their COVID-19 illness must integrate foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals.
COVID-19 as a condition presents different indications, depending on how mild or severe your infection is. A number of studies have also detailed how tough the virus can be for the body, even long after the infection has vanished. These symptoms have been battered under the category of long or post COVID. From a scratchy throat, recurring fevers, breathlessness, anxiety, scientists have now decoded yet another symptom which can persist for months- COVID toes.
According to previous studies, people who have certain pre-existing medical conditions, such as respiratory ailments, corpulence, seniors (which could impact immunity) are more likely to be at risk of developing long COVID. Diabetic patients, who have recovered from COVID-19 need to pay extra attention since they have a higher risk of developing skin infection, suffer from bleeds and cuts.
Apart from this, a recovered patient should also continue to monitor his/her vitals for a month or two. If you have symptoms like breathlessness, chronic fatigue, muscle ache and lingering cough, long COVID could pose a higher than usual risk. Skin hygiene, sanitation and post COVID care must be followed assiduously.
