Long covid is a complex condition which is still being understood. It appears to be characterised by endothelial damage, chronic inflammation and mitochondrial dysfunction leading to multiple symptoms, the most prevalent of which include; fatigue, brain fog and shortness of breath. Government statistics currently estimate that 2 million people in the UK are affected by long covid. With many people unable to lead their normal lives due to this debilitating condition and few available therapies for long covid recovery, it is important to consider the pathophysiology of long covid and how dysfunctions that contribute to symptoms can be counterbalanced.
This blog looks at the tangled web of dysfunctions that drive each other following covid infection and highlights potential long covid recovery interventions that may be beneficial for supporting individuals who are experiencing long covid.
