Diagnosis of complications after COVID-19

Diagnosis of complications after COVID-19

The SARS-CoV-2 virus enters the human body through the respiratory tract or mucous membranes. But then it multiplies very quickly, attacking more organs. It causes COVID-19 disease, and gives many symptoms, often nonspecific. It has a relatively low mortality rate, but can cause health-threatening complications.

The virus attacks the body of an infected person in multiple organs:

  • respiratory system (pneumonia, respiratory failure),
  • gastrointestinal system (vomiting and diarrhea),
  • the circulatory system (heart failure),
  • nervous system (headache, disturbance of consciousness, feeling of confusion),
  • urinary system (kidney damage).

Research on the effects of the SARS-CoV-2 virus on the body is in its early stages. However, their results already indicate the possibility of long-term consequences of the disease for the body, even in the case of its asymptomatic course.

Complications after COVID-19 can appear after several months, gradually progressing to chronic conditions.

This makes it all the more important to monitor the body’s condition. Early detection of possible complications gives the opportunity to prevent their long-term effects.

If you know or suspect that you have been infected with the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, tolerate exertion less well, or experience other unusual complaints, check to see if this is the result of complications from the disease.

The package of examinations for recovering patients includes necessary laboratory and diagnostic tests, as well as specialized medical consultations.
