Hello -

The research on the long-term effects of Covid over the past two years has conclusively demonstrated its association with respiratory illness and cardiovascular disease. However, recent findings have shown that Covid can also manifest with lingering gastrointestinal symptoms.

A study published in the Journal of Gastroenterology and Hepatology revealed that individuals who had contracted Covid were more prone to experiencing stomach and bowel issues.

Issues included irritable bowel syndrome (characterised by abdominal pain, cramping, bloating, gas, diarrhea, and constipation) or dyspeptic symptoms (discomfort or pain in the upper abdomen, often accompanied by bloating, belching, and nausea), especially in the first three months post-infection.

But, these issues persisted even after six months, setting Covid survivors apart from those who had not been infected.

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!
