very nice people .
Dr Brehm was very kind and takes his time to explain all matters. The staff are also very professional .
The average age of our population is increasing, and as a result the prevalence of conditions such as Dementia is a growing concern. If we can better understand the risk factors associated with this debilitating cognitive impairment, we can more effectively intervene before the development of the disease. Earlier studies are suggesting that obesity and "belly fat" are linked with decreased cognitive function. Read the article to understand the details of why belly fat specifically is linked with cognitive impairment.

Sharing from Dr Louis P Coates

Coronavirus-19 Update March 12th

WIth more information coming out and people getting scared, time for another update. Remember this is a new disease that was just discovered about 3 months ago, so information will be changing rapidly as tens of thousands of doctors and virologists study this new strain of the coronavirus and those affected by it daily.

Why are so many new cases developing?

Stay calm and expect many more positives to start showing up. This is not because of a new pattern or a major increase in the spread of this disease but due to testing methods. As I said in my earlier update that the denominator of this disease is highly underestimated. Because many people have mild symptoms they have not been tested, as evidenced by the Utah Jazz player ready to play while waiting on his test to come back. If not for mild fever he would not have been tested and not known he had the disease spreading it to more people. So likely thousands of people are walking around spreading the disease because they do not know they have it.

Also, the number of testing kits and locations that have them have been very limited. As I said above this a new disease so not easy to get millions of test kits made in a short amount of time. Now as the test kits will start to become more readily available at more locations, many more people will be found to be positive.

Finally, the people who are allowed to be tested is now changed. Up until very recently, if you had flu like symptoms but had not recently traveled to China, Italy, South Korea or Iran you could not be tested.

So unfortunately, expect the number of cases to start dramatically increasing over the next days to weeks. However, this is not all bad as the mortality rate should start to fall significantly as the denominator grows in numbers.

How is it spreading?

This virus is not airborne but is spread through respiratory droplets. This means close contacts within 6 feet can inhale these droplets and become infected. Coughing, sneezing, kissing or eating and drinking after others spread this disease. It can also potentially, I emphasize potentially not proven spread via contaminated surfaces as we know now it can live up to 3 days on certain surfaces.

Who is dying?

What we have learned from the cases we have so far is that certain groups seem to be at a much higher risk.

The highest risk group appears to those with cardiopulmonary disorders. What this means if you have COPD or a heart disease such as congestive heart failure, cardiomyopathy, severe atherosclerosis you are much more likely to progress to severe disease or death. If you smoke this is a really good time to quit as most of the deaths in China have been linked to smokers.

Also over age 70 or if you are immunosuppressed such as undergoing chemo, Psoriasis drugs or on oral steroids your risk of progressing to significant disease or death is high. A high risk of death in China has been linked to oral steroid use which makes sense as chronic smokers with COPD frequently take oral steroids.

How are they dying?

It appears to be that patients that become fatal have one of three significant issues. First is they obtain a bilateral interstitial pneumonia. This pneumonia advances toARDS (adult respiratory distress syndrome). This essentially means your lungs stop working and if you don’t get on a ventilator you can’t breath on your own so you suffocate from lack of oxygen.

The second way is from severe dehydration. When you feel bad you don’t feel like drinking so you don’t meet your fluid demands. Also you have increased fluid demands from sweating and diarrhea. Your body is trying to fight the infection and has 2-3 times your normal fluid needs. This leads to kidney failure and sepsis which is frequently fatal.

The previous two are the same most common ways that influenza kills also. We also now know that the Covid-19 also can rarely cause viral cardiomyopathy to spontaneously develop. This is a known terrible consequence of other viruses but not common with influenza. A viral cardiomyopathy is where your heart muscle essentially becomes very weak and can not adequately pump blood throughout your body. This leads to heart failure and fluid backs up into lungs drowning you.

Is it time to panic?

Not directly but it is time for some concern! This is not the end of the world and everyone is not going to die. But we need to be prepared for some significant short term changes in your plans. If you are immunosuppressed, have lung disease, heart disease or are over the age 70 you should consider limiting travel and possible exposure to the virus.

The fatality rate as i mentioned above will certainly fall from 30 deaths per 1000 patients to a much lower number but even at 3-4 deaths per 1000 that is twice as many as influenza at 1-2 per thousand. So it should be taken very seriously for those at the highest risk. In spite of that it is still very unlikely to reach the total annual fatality rates of influenza with 50,000 Americans and 500,000 worldwide.

However, the scary part and reason for some concern is with no people vaccinated this disease could spread rapidly. So if too many severe cases develop simultaneously, will have enough hospital beds, ventilators and IV fluids to treat them all simultaneously. So prevention here is very key to start limiting the number of cases and more importantly severe cases.

In addition the panic from this disease is likely to cause more damage than disease itself. I fear many people or worse clinics/hospitals could be left without hand sanitizer because of hoarders. This will cause not only this virus but many other dangerous pathogens to proliferate putting everyone at risk.

What can I do to fight this disease?

WASH YOUR HANDS!!!! I can not say this enough, the single most important barrier you have for this disease is to practice good hygiene. Do not touch your face, eyes or nose this can contaminate yourself. The virus has been shown in studies at the National Institutes of Health virology laboratory to live on plastics and stainless steel for upto 3 days. But the good news is it is easily killed with almost all disinfectants or alcohol 60% or more. Wipe down surfaces with disinfectants or spray lysol as these kill the virus.

Do not forget to disinfect your cell phone! Cell phones are a major carrier of bacteria and viruses! If you wash your hands than check Facebook waiting on your food you have recontamined yourself. If your phone is water resistant and most are then alcohol wipes are safe to use. If not they make ultraviolet sterilization devices for sale that will kill everything in a few minutes time.

Eat a well balanced diet and get a good night's sleep. Take all of your prescription medications as prescribed. You need to make sure your immune system is at full strength.

Have enough food, water or gatorade for 2 weeks in case you are infected and instructed to stay home. But DO NOT horde hand sanitizer, soap, toilet paper or other cleaning agents. Because doing so will leave others without and spread the virus putting yourself at more risk too. If someone is out of these agents and you have extra, give them some. You can’t stop it yourself. We have to work together as a team to fight this virus. Remember there is no I in team.

Also practice social distancing? This will be a commonly used term over the next few months. But essentially means staying over 6 feet apart. Using the phone or video conferencing when you can. If your job allows you to work from home do so.

The good news is this will likely kill off influenza and make this disease easier to diagnose.

If you are at high risk for severe disease as described above then you should consider staying home for a while. Wait for this virus to die down before going on a trip or to a highly attended event.

What if i think I have the disease?

First, the symptoms are a little different than influenza. It is not a sudden onset like FLU but rather a prodrome of myalgias, fatigue, cough and no or only low grade fevers taking an average of 8 to 9 days to develop shortness of breath.

Do not go to your doctor’s office yet and risk contaminating others but rather contact the local health department about where you can be tested. Your local doctor does not have the test yet so he will have to send you out to get tested. Your local health department will know the locations that have been provided test kits.

What if i test positive?

Do not panic because over 80% are mild disease and have very little symptoms. Stay home and isolate yourself. No matter how good you feel, do not go anywhere until you are released. As you will contaminate others and some might develop severe disease. When someone is in the room with you then YOU should wear a mask to not infect them.

Watch for signs of shortness of breath, chest tightness, or severe swelling in your legs. Also drink lots of water as much as you can. If you have those symptoms or do not urinate in over 5 hours then you should go to the ER wearing a mask to not infect others.

Feel free to share as the more informed with actual information the more likely we are to defeat this virus!
