Cardiologists from the United States found that the transferred coronavirus increases the probability of sudden development of hypertension

What we know about the consequences of the covid (and not only from the latest research):

* causes “brain fog”, due to which cognitive abilities are reduced,

* seriously damages the lungs, up to the formation of scar tissue;

* causes disturbances in the work of the heart and blood vessels and other organs (it hits vulnerable places of the body, as the doctor says: “where it is thin, it breaks there”);

* seriously increases the likelihood of developing diabetes of both the second and first types.

And here is a new misfortune: cardiologists from the United States found that the transferred coronavirus increases the likelihood of sudden development of hypertension, persistent high blood pressure. If the infection caused moderate disease, the risk increases 1.5 times. After a severe form – 2.2 times.

“Given the number of people who have been sick with covid in recent years, there is a strong possibility that an unexpectedly large number of patients will develop hypertension in the near future,” says Tim Duong, a professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine at NY. York.

What is most annoying: according to researchers, the transferred covid contributes to the rapid development of hypertension, even in those who are not prone to diseases of the cardiovascular system. Observational data from 45,000 patients were analyzed. For comparison, they also took those who had the flu.

And in patients after a severe coronavirus infection six months later, sudden hypertension was detected about 2.2 times more often than in those with the flu and in healthy volunteers. Unfortunately, the likelihood of developing high blood pressure was further increased if doctors used corticosteroids to treat severe forms of coronavirus infection.

Scientists believe that the coronavirus disrupts the renin-angiotensin hormone system. Regulates the pressure in the vessels and the volume of blood in the body. The scientists hope that follow-up observations and experiments will help to fully discover the mechanisms of the sudden development of hypertension in coronavirus carriers and select a therapy that will help reduce the likelihood of its occurrence.

Meanwhile, according to statistics, hypertension itself seriously increases the likelihood of a serious course of the disease. About a quarter.


The WHO continues to believe that the coronavirus appeared in the world naturally

WHO chief scientist Jeremy Farrar said the organization has begun to take a closer look at the version of the natural origin of COVID-19. That is, the original version of the leak of the virus from the laboratories fades into the background. “But we still can’t ignore the geography of the emergence: the Wuhan lab.”
