For those of you that want to ride out COVID-19 infections, remember that they are many co-morbidities associated with the disease; even mild forms. In addition to respiratory distress , patients with COVID-19 can experience blood clotting disorders that can lead to strokes, and extreme inflammation that attacks multiple organ systems. The virus can also cause neurological complications that range from headache, dizziness and loss of taste or smell to seizures and confusion. Persistent respiratory problems with COPD from lung inflammation. Pancreatic inflammation with later develop of diabetes, and pericarditis and myocarditis. T-cell dysfunction with persistent depressed immunity almost HIV like picture – just to name a few.
We don’t yet know the extent of injury caused by this virus. That is why I take and recommend a low dose HCQ. My staff and I see and treat 5 to 10 COVID-19 patients daily. With early intervention with HCQ and zinc, we can block viral uptake and replication. The recovery in early intervention is dramatic. Just like with Tamiflu and seasonal flu. If you don’t give it within the first three days, it’s not effective.
We have been seeing COVID-19 patients actively for 3 months. No one has gotten sick. We screened our staff and everyone was negative. Even our antibody tests were negative, with as much exposure as we have had. We even give them breathing treatments in designated rooms. HCQ is a safe, cheap and effective medication. Most studies done have not addressed early out patient management. We are about to publish some data on our extensive experience with early out patient management. Research data analysis and publication takes time, but I felt with the surge we are having, it’s essential that I say something.
Please get on a low dose of HCQ for prevention. It works. Get treated early if you develop flu-like symptoms. Don’t wait for results. The window for maximum effectiveness is small. Contact us, and we will connect you with network of physician nation wide that can see you via telehealth and take care of your and your family. Stay safe!
