    Default Covid-19

    Hi, hope everyone is doing well. Is there a topic/thread dedicated to the current situation? What are your doctors saying? Should we be much more vigilant than everyone else? Are we taking medications that can help for this situation? Had anyone contacted covid with wegeners? Scary times we live in.

    Godspeed to all

    Pred may be useful for treating COVID-19.

    Another steroid is thrown into the mix of potential COVID-19 treatments

    Covid-19 hits close to home. I live in a 55+ community with all individual homes. It is a large community, and I am not very active, since GPA, so I donít hear everything. I do know of one man, about 1/2 mile away passing away from covid. Then another fellow about 6 houses away was mysteriously hospitalized and has been very weak, blood clots, lung problems etc. Now I just got news that the man two houses away passed away from covid. He and his wife attended a family reunion, everyone got it. For him it was fatal. I believe he was in his 60ís.
    I am here to tell you, it is not just young people ignoring the rules. Some (not all) of the seniors have gone wild, block parties, live music, dancing and singing. Management has not opened the facilities, but our streets and sidewalks are public. Some people post that they refuse to wear a mask. Now stores are demanding it. People are writing and posting about fun restaurants.
    At least I donít share walls or elevators with these people. Others are saying they are afraid to take walks because the unmasked people wonít move. I say step on the yard or street, just donít get close to anyone unmasked.
    We are still having our groceries delivered or placed in our trunk. I heard a doctor on TV say the most dangerous places are gyms, bars and restaurants. Neither my husband or I will take any risk. I must go for infusion next week. I am experiencing a lot of muscle and joint pain, so I know I canít put it off. Hope I donít catch anything there, but as Alysia says, after taking all the precautions, if I still get it then it is Godís will.
    Sorry to be down. I can see that manís roof from my back porch. This was preventable!

    Steroids might be a mixed bag. One study indicated that people who were taking over 10 mg when diagnosed seem to have a more severe case of Covid-19. But it also indicated once they had been admitted to a hospital and needed oxygen, increasing steroid medicine seem to improve their chances of surviving. Like most things dealing with Covid-19 more studies are needed to confirm what will prove to be most likely true.

    Thank you. That was my point of confusion. I read the article mentioned by Pete twice and I thought it was saying that steroid use AFTER COVID diagnosis was good, but it didn't say anything about it's prior use. Where is your article please about that study?

    Thank you
