Iron, Nutrition and Long COVID

Nutrition is a hugely important scientific determinant of health and wellbeing. Iron and B12 deficiency are increasingly common, mostly related to dietary choices and nutritional diseases like auto-immune gastritis. They cause fatigue, brain fog, palpitations, shortness of breath and impaired exercise tolerance. They are also related to long COVID and other causes of chronic fatigue or ME and can be treatable causes. Investigation and management, often using parental therapy with iron infusion and/or B12 injections can lead to marked improvements but this is limited in the NHS, especially recently due to resource constraint post-austerity and COVID.

This lecture will discuss physical fitness and high-performance athletes, plant-based diets and veganism, screening and testing for iron and B12 deficiency, novel treatments for long COVID and the role of nutrition in health and wellbeing. It may not be part of perfusion management but relates more to looking after ourselves and long-term physical and mental health.
