December 06, 2021

For people recovering from COVID-19, the journey back to health and well-being can be a long and winding road. Some suffer from crippling fatigue; others experience brain fog; and still others can’t seem to catch their breath. How do we treat the lingering symptoms known as long COVID and what is the outlook for patients experiencing them? To answer these questions and more, we speak with Dr. Lekshmi Santhosh, the founder and Medical Director of the multidisciplinary post-COVID/post-ICU OPTIMAL Clinic at UCSF Health. She explains what we know about long Covid to date and how we can best support patients suffering from it and shares her best advice for minimizing our chances of experiencing long Covid in the first place.
