Clearing COVID- factors involved

Here is a link to a research article on factors involved in clearing COVID if you have been exposed/infected.

It is probably a bit technical, so I will translate as best I can.


Our body usually does a good job protecting us from infections. This is the job of our immune system, but our immune system can be made stronger or weaker dependent on our lifestyle and risk factors.


The article above indicates that 3 risk factors may PROLONG the viral activity in the body most likely hampering our immune systems ability to fight. This is not what we want to happen.


What are the three risk factors?


1- Elevated Glucose

2- Elevated Liver enzyme ALT

3- Decreased HDL cholesterol


In my IMW combination Traditional-Functional-Systems approach to health and wellness, I look for correlations to determine a root cause of a health issue. So how do the three risk factors above correlate?


Elevated Glucose is a measurement we often see in Diabetes, Pre-Diabetes, Obesity and High Carbohydrate diets.


Elevated liver enzyme ALT is a measurement we often see in Fatty Liver, which has a much higher prevalence in Diabetes, Pre-Diabetes, Obesity and High Carbohydrate diets.


Decreased HDL cholesterol is a measurement we often see in Diabetes, Pre-Diabetes, Obesity and High Carbohydrate diets.


Do you see the correlation of a probable root cause?
