Advice from Dr Charlotte Manisty

When we sat down with Dr Manisty, Consultant Cardiologist at OneWelbeck Heart Health, she made the important point that Covid-19 can precipitate underlying heart conditions that a patient was previously unaware of. Watch the video below to learn more about this and other effects of Long-Covid.

Long-Covid and Autonomic Dysfunction

Autonomic Dysfunction is a condition in which the autonomic nervous system (ANS) does not work properly. Where the ANS controls all of the automatic functions in your body, such as breathing, your heart rate, or sweating, when there is a dysfunction it can have multiple effects on an individual.

Dr Boon Lim has carried out extensive research into the link between Covid-19 and Autonomic Dysfunction – watch the videos below to find out more, and learn his top tips on how to manage symptoms.
