If you missed yesterday's controversial thoughts podcast/video, you might also want to check that one out. I had a few ideas I wanted to discuss on COVID after I finished recording and knew I had to do another. The concept of "long COVID" is increasingly discussed today, but I'm not convinced this is anything new. First, it was "healthy" people (sadly) suffering from COVID who were obese or likely had metabolic dysfunction, and I think it's the same issue now. The majority of those with underlying metabolic dysfunction DON'T know they have it, which is why discussions of this are so important.
If you're new here and don't know what I mean by metabolic dysfunction, this might be thought of as insulin resistance, though that terminology is imprecise. Listen to the podcast next Tuesday (Fundamental Health) for part 2 with Peter from Hyperlipid to hear more discussion of this, or listen to the many podcasts I've done discussing it previously.
Take away: Long COVID is an underlying, undiagnosed metabolic illness IMO. Be metabolically healthy.#thremembering
