After COVID, still not 100% yet?
Since COVID-19 started in 2019, we’ve been seeing an increase in patients that’s struggling with the aftermath of this pandemic. The cellular war that rages through your body within the first exposure to weeks after your immune system concurs this viral attack. The landscape of your body’s tissues take a heavy toll. One of most hardest hit is your lung.
Mild infections are the first to come knocking on your doors, asking ” Can you just check if it’s ok, coz I’m just not 100%”. Yes, they may have come off the battle with merely a few scars, but these battle scars pose more of a problem than you’d expect. Tissue destruction in the lungs compromises gas exchange in these areas of your lung, unable to feed your cells with the oxygen they need. These scars range from small pockets in one lobe, to large scars that’s even visible on x-rays.
Bottom line is that a fast replicating virus like COVID-19 can within a matter of days cause severe problems. If your bodies cells don’t receive enough oxygen, they suffocate. Your lungs are crucial at maintaining this Saturation level of Oxygen, or cells starts dyeing.
We’ve seen the heart try to accommodate for the loss of surface area where gas can enter the bloodstream, by pushing more blood through the lungs per minute leaving you with an elevated heart rate. This in turn can overwork your heart muscle causing who knows what other cardiac problems.
Our testing center at Well Health Pro tests your lungs to give you answers and establish how your lungs are working. Are the normal? If not, how far below the norm are you? After we’ve done the test, it will guide us to what the next step will be.
