COVID-19: Hidden Hormone Is a RED FLAG?

Dear Reader, 

Finding who is at risk for a potentially more severe case of COVID-19 is not just important for research purposes, it can also be lifesaving.  

Because figuring out exactly what’s going on our bodies – whatever allows the virus to thrive — is the key to fighting this modern beast 

And recently, a new study has given us another clue.  

If you get sick, knowing your body’s level of this one hormone may be a red flag signaling that it’s time to get in quick and get help.  

A new research studyout of the Imperial College of London, published in the journal Lancet Diabetes and Endocrinology, found that one hormone (among all others) could be a problem for those who contract the virus.  

You probably know the stress hormone cortisone  it’s produced in response to stress (either emotional or physical stress).   

Cortisone increases sugar in your bloodstream, wakes your brain up, and prepares the body to deal with stress.  

Well, your cortisol levels – which measure the cortisone in your system — will rise whenever you’re infected with any kind of disease.  

A simple blood test is used to test cortisol levels. A normal healthy level is between 100 and 200 nm/L (nanometers per liter).  

In the new study, the research team found that the people with the worst case of COVID-19 had very high levels of cortisol. More so, they found that extremely high levels of cortisol in blood are likely to lead to quicker deterioration and possibly death 

Some people in the study had cortisol levels of 3,241! 

After crunching some numbers, the study team determined those with a cortisol level of 744 or less had a better prognosis, and survived on average for 36 days (and longer). Patients with levels over 744 had an average survival of just 15 days. 

The good news is that testing cortisol levels in people is easy and may be a good diagnostic test, especially when it comes to COVID.
