What Long COVID Looks Like in Children and Young Adults
At least 15 million kids have been infected by D-19, but it is unclear how many of them have had or are living with long COVID. The ailment includes symptoms that linger after COVID-19 or symptoms that come back after an absence of weeks or months. A person might feel short of breath, lose their sense of smell, be unable to think clearly, be tired all the time, or have other maladies that can be traced back to COVID

Thread Remember 2020, when we protected kids from infections, and then were told schools were safe, and also that kids would not die? Well, the data disagrees. Reference years are 2016-2018, to enable 2019 as a pre-pandemic comparator.

Thread Type 2 diabetes increased among youth during and after COVID-19 pandemic(Endocrine Society):

➡️The number of children(0-18y) diagnosed with type 1 and 2 diabetes continued to rise in the year following the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic(2021-2022):

T2D: +37% T1D: +106%

➡️They first tried to blame “school shutdowns causing kids to be less active, snacking more often, or eating more unhealthy foods led to increased weight gain and more cases of type 2 diabetes”…..but that didn’t work out well😉

➡️The increase in the proportion of new onset diabetes patients who developed T2D from years one(pre-pandemic) to four(second pandemic year) was statistically significant higher.

➡️Even though we may have returned to pre-pandemic times in several aspects, the increased risk of our youth developing type 2 diabetes that started during the pandemic has persisted"

➡️Striking……..No words on T1D anymore!

As reported by the Norwegian Broadcasting Corp.

This is serious business. According to Harvard in 2015: "A Scottish study published this week in JAMA shows that at the age of 20, individuals with type 1 diabetes on average lived 12 fewer years than 20-year-olds without it."

Thread Conclusion: "Findings from our study support that prior COVID-19 infection was associated with a significantly increased risk for RSV infection and was a driving force for the 2022 surge of severe pediatric RSV cases in the US."

This is an important pre-print. Thx for sharing./3
