There are many symptoms of Covid-19 disease that can tell us about your health, from the severity of the infection, the risk of infection with COVID-19 for a long time and the type of treatment that you may need, and it is of the utmost importance that every patient tracks their symptoms during the infection phase.
Who is most at risk of reinfection?
While some people may be infected with COVID-19 more than once, experts believe that your level of antibodies and your innate immunity determine the risk of reinfection, according to the “timesofindia” website.
Weak immunity also means that people with certain comorbidities are more likely to get the disease again.
New research from the University of Wisconsin also confirms that the course and pattern of symptoms can also tell us how much a person is at risk of reinfection.
How long do antibodies stay in the body?
As the body learns to fight infection, it develops antibodies to Covid, at the moment, from what studies have shown, it has been suggested that the antibodies may last anywhere between 3-6 months for a person, after which they can start to wear off.
People with milder infections are thought to have lower immunity than others.
What did the study find?
The study analyzed blood samples from 113 patients who had recovered from COVID-19 over a five-week period, which were then compared from blood samples drawn three months later.
Study results also prove what previous research has demonstrated – men, and people with severe COVID disease are more likely to have richer, long-lasting antibodies.Patients with no symptoms or milder symptoms may see their antibody count decrease sooner than usual. While the research adds that more reliable studies must be conducted to conclude the results, these are the four broad signs that a person has longer-lasting immunity and a lower risk of contracting COVID again compared to others.
Have a fever for more than a week
Usually, a low-grade fever (ranging from 37-39 ° C) is associated with COVID-19 and is said to decrease 4-5 days after infection, a fever that lasts for a longer period is a cause for concern.
While a fever is also the body’s natural response to inflammation, a longer-lasting body temperature may also mean that the body is working overtime to produce more antibodies.
Systemic inflammatory responses, such as fever, are important for building up a good immune response, and they could also be the reason that milder cases of COVID contain fewer antibodies.
Suffering from loss of appetite
Loss of appetite or feeling upset while eating is common with viral illnesses.
In cases of COVID-19 infection, loss of appetite and perverted eating habits are associated with severe coronavirus.
It can also occur when a person experiences symptoms such as a loss of their sense of smell and taste (natural foods do not attract the taste buds), sore throat, nausea, and chronic fatigue.
If doctors are to be believed, severe loss of appetite is also a subtle sign that your body is undergoing a major change and is generating a high systemic inflammatory response, aiding in the production of rich antibodies.
While it may be a good indicator of your body’s resistance to immunity and the development of immunity, it should not be taken lightly.
Long-term loss of appetite and problems with eating can lead to a metabolic disorder, which leads to weight loss, energy depletion and fatigue, which is a frightening outcome.
Diarrhea can affect patients in many cases, and it is a frightening consequence of severe Covid.
It is also often accompanied by other symptoms such as bowel infection and vomiting.
It is usually considered a sign that the virus has damaged the digestive system and is common in hospitalized patients, however, it may also mean that it “strengthens or enables” the body’s natural antibody response by reviving immune cells located along the lining of the intestine.
Stomach and abdominal cramps
While abdominal and stomach pain is also a common sign of gastrointestinal complications associated with Corona, researchers found that people who noticed abdominal pain as one of their clear symptoms throughout the course of infection had more antibodies and longer-lasting immunity than those who did not, however, there is More research is needed to infer the relationship.
