Post-Covid concern: Cases of hormonal imbalance on rise, say doctors

Lucknow, Aug 10 (IANS): A major post-Covid impact is being seen in patients who are reporting hormonal imbalances.

The Sanjay Gandhi Postgraduate Institute of Medical Sciences (SGPGIMS) is getting, on an average, ten such patients every day.

Professor Gyan Chand of SGPGIMS said that the latest review article, published in the Journal of Endocrine Society has revealed that SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes the Covid-19 disease, is not only affecting the pancreas, but also other endocrine glands, even leading to male sexual disorders.

"The department of internal medicine at Loyola University Medical Centre, Maywood, Illinois (the US) and the department of medicine, division of endocrinology, Loyola University Health Care System, and endocrinology section, medical service, VA Hospital, Hines, Illinois have revealed that SARS-CoV-2 (Covid-19) virus is causing moderate to severe disease in about 15 per cent of post-Covid patients."

He further said, "It has widespread effects throughout the body with myriad clinical manifestations, including the endocrine system. It is having an impact on the pathophysiology and management of diabetes (both outpatient and inpatient) as well as pituitary, adrenal, thyroid, bone, and gonadal function," he added.

The gonadal hormones were more affected in males resulting in altered sperm quality and reduced testosterone.

He said these patients required proper treatment for four to six months.

"In some cases, patients returning for treatment have reported widespread effects throughout the body with lesser-known clinical manifestations," he added.

The doctor said, "It is known to everyone that Covid virus sticks to ACE-2 receptors. Hence, it is affecting all the endocrine glands."

He pointed out "There are several reports of scrotal discomfort, even severe scrotal pain in people once infected with Covid-19."

    Be sterilized from these shots ? Bill Gates plan ? Divine message on virus and vaccine plans in a message to John Leary dated Wednesday, December 9, 2020: ... Jesus said: “My people, for months I have been warning My faithful not to take any virus vaccine shots and not to take any flu shots either. I have warned you that these vaccines will ruin your immune system, and genetically modify your body. Any vaccine reactions will have little chance of being counteracted in your body. This Chinese virus and the vaccines are a Bill Gates plan to vaccinate the whole world. This is also their plan to reduce the population of the world, meaning people could die or be sterilized from these shots. Some law makers are already planning legislation to make these shots mandatory. Refuse to take any vaccine, even if they threaten to kill you in detention centers. I will call My faithful to My refuges if they threaten your lives. Trust in Me to protect and heal you from any virus at My refuges.”
