5 Unexpected COVID Related Hormone Issues In Women

YouTube video

Most women have similar symptoms to men with a mild COVID-19 infection.

But hormones like estrogen and progesterone protect women from severe forms.

Early on, scientists noted that more infected men ended up on respirators. We’re now understanding why.

COVID affects different hormones. And hormones are never 1 trick ponies.

For example, most of us know insulin controls blood sugar. But did you know too much can stop digestive systems from breaking down proteins? Or prevent immune systems from cleaning away dead cells?

Just like insulin, female hormones aren’t only for reproduction.

We’d be SO interested to hear about any of your strange COVID symptoms. Did they disappear when you recovered? Or do you suspect long-COVID is changing how your hormones work? Please write your experiences in the comments section below!

🔎 Today we’re going to be revealing 5 Unexpected COVID Related Hormone Issues In Women

Sign 5: Skin Rash

When papers about COVID symptoms were first published, some mentioned skin rashes. Rashes were rare and usually in the chest and rib regions.

One 2020 report saw that 15 in 2,621 COVID patients developed erythema, and 7 others had hives. Cases were equally divided between men and women.

Until doctors considered the disease we call long-COVID.

Sign 4: Long-COVID Toe

Here’s a strange fact.

The longer your toes, the greater your chance of developing long-COVID toe! It’s an itchy, chilblain-like sore.

The Royal College of Podiatry looked at the history of this weird symptom. Like skin rashes, COVID toes affected both genders during the first waves.

But again, these gender risk factors change once short COVID becomes long COVID.

Sign 3: COVID Tongue

The ZOE Symptom Study gathers COVID symptom information from UK citizens via an app. The head of this study named one group of reported symptoms ‘COVID tongue’.

Tongue swelling, tongue patches, and tongue ulcers affect 1 in 250 of the infected people who used the app.

Little research exists about this unexpected sign. But there is 1 theory.

Sign 2: Irregular Menstruation

At the start of this video, we saw how female sex hormones protect us from severe COVID symptoms.

Estrogen and progesterone help keep women out of hospital.

These hormones have different effects.

Sign 1: Grave’s Disease

The ratio of women to men is 8 to 1 for Grave’s disease.

Grave’s disease is the result of an overactive thyroid gland.

With too many thyroid hormones, the metabolism speeds up. Symptoms include rapid and irregular heartbeat, unexplained weight loss, anxiety, insomnia, and shaking.

The primary cause of Grave’s disease is autoimmunity. Antibodies, instead of attacking thyroid cells, mimic the effects of a chemical in the brain. This chemical makes thyroid cells produce more hormones.

But thyroid cells have lots of angiotensin-converting enzyme gateways.

It could be that the COVID virus also mimics those guiding brain chemicals.
