Hormones and Covid (#185)

2020-08-20T09:19:51-05:00

Watch it on YouTube here The world is experiencing a pandemic from COVID-19. So research is looking at every which way various physiologic states might be protective or increase vulnerability. Across the world males seem more susceptible, compared to women (especially premenopausal women) to getting COVID. Once they get it, they are more susceptible to severe outcomes as well as fatalities, once again compared to younger women. It has been suggested that estrogen may be protective against COVID-19 in females and/or that androgens (like testosterone) worsen COVID-19 in men.

Watch it on YouTube here Melatonin and Viruses Melatonin is a Versatile Molecule Did you know? Melatonin is such an important hormone! It is made all throughout the body in the gastrointestinal tract, retina, thymus, bone marrow, and by white blood cells called leukocytes. Melatonin is synthesized by the pineal gland in the brain. Besides regulating sleep and our relationship with light and dark, melatonin wears a lot of other hats. Melatonin is a power anti-oxidant, hormone protector and up-regulator of critical molecules like glutathione. One important emerging role for melatonin is its huge influence over our immune [...]

Issues for Tissues – Don’t Be Nonchalant About Steroids

2020-07-13T08:32:29-05:00

Research on Steroids Research is piling up that steroids can have adverse downstream issues. We used to think this was mostly from extended use, but in some of you it can occur from even using steroids for a few days. A population-based study of more than 2.6 million people found that taking corticosteroids for 14 days or less was associated with a substantially greater risk for gastrointestinal  bleeding, sepsis, and heart failure, all which can occur up to 30 days after you stopped taking the steroids. Patients were tracked from 5 to 90 days before treatment for various conditions when steroids [...]

The flu mostly damages the lungs while COVID-19 can travel through the blood [...]
