A relapse of coronavirus infection is most likely if a recovering patient neglects the rules and recommendations of doctors. This was reported in an article in the Journal of the American Medical Association. According to experts, 27% of the observed patients, having barely felt better, abandon the prescribed course of treatment.
This happens for the following reason: it seems to patients that the symptoms go away, and therefore they strive to stop taking medications as soon as possible. These feelings are often false, experts say. In order not to provoke the return of the virus, doctors give the following advice:
more often to be in the fresh air / "stir up" the body with walks, without overwork; do not overcool the body, since the immune system is still weak; in no case do not burden the body with hard physical work or training; eating a lot of protein is an important building block for our body and internal organs.
Doctors note that after suffering a coronavirus disease, a person may develop a vitamin D deficiency. It will be possible to replenish it by eating fatty fish (for example, salmon), mushrooms, cow's milk and orange juice.
But there are also restrictions in the use of products. So, according to the candidate of medical sciences Andrei Kondrakhin, during the course of treatment, one should give up alcohol and reduce the consumption of sugar and salt, writes "Evening Moscow".
“Less sweet and salty in the diet. As for alcohol, according to my recommendations, it should not be taken earlier than a month after recovery. Many believe that only the lungs are affected by the coronavirus. In fact, the consequences for the intestines are also quite serious. This is especially true for those who had diarrhea as one of the symptoms of the disease. For this reason, it makes sense to limit the consumption of fried, spicy - everything that irritates the intestines - and keep the diet for at least a month,”the scientist advises.
According to the expert, all the insidiousness of COVID-19 is that it can calm down for a while, creating the illusion of recovery. It is at this moment that it is important not to quit treatment, but to follow the doctor's instructions, otherwise the disease may return and lead to more serious problems.
