Hello -

A new study found that double-jointed people may face a higher long COVID risk, including IBS.

People with the condition are 30% more likely not to fully recover from a COVID-19 infection.

For the study, researchers analyzed data on more than 3,000 participants in a COVID symptom study. About 1 in 3 people said they had not fully recovered from their last bout with COVID, and among them nearly 30% were double-jointed.

Long COVID, which often includes IBS and other gut issues, is probably a syndrome of different symptoms that the coronavirus causes within the immune, inflammatory, nervous, respiratory and cardiovascular systems. Very flexible joints could be one route by which COVID does lasting harm, the research team concluded.
