Hello -

A new study will be conducted to assess long COVID symptoms, post-COVID-19 health impacts and treatments, with a focus on GI issues such as IBS.

IBS has already been linked to numerous bacterial, protozoan and viral infections. The risk of developing IBS following an acute gastrointestinal, or GI, infection is approximately 9%.

COVID-19 infection elicits a wide range of GI symptoms, including diarrhea, nausea and vomiting, with reports of acute GI symptoms occurring in more than 60% of patients.

Understanding how COVID-19 impacts the incidence of IBS or exacerbates IBS symptoms has the potential to benefit millions of people, given the scale of the pandemic and ongoing waves of infection with many reports of chronic GI symptoms after acute COVID-19 infection.

The new study is part of the CoVHORT study, a longitudinal research study of COVID-19 and post-COVID conditions.

As COVID and gut news continue to evolve, keep your eye on the running page on all IBS / COVID info here.

You are not alone.
