How does SARS-CoV-2 make people sick?

By Jennifer O'Hara, @jenohara

A novel coronavirus is a new strain that has not been seen before in humans. SARS-Co-V2 is a novel virus, causing the disease COVID-19. Because COVID-19 is a new disease, much is still being learned about how it spreads and the severity of illness it causes.

On the Mayo Clinic Q&A podcast, Dr. Gregory Poland, infectious disease expert and head of Mayo Clinic’s Vaccine Research Group, explains the science behind how the virus makes people sick, and what the virus does to the body. Dr. Poland will also discuss the latest information on clinical trials and vaccine research to fight the disease outbreak.

I can’t eat the things you mentioned because they are forbidden on a strict renal diet. Even brown rice is forbidden. I have to limit the amount of potassium and phosphorus in my diet while at the same time get about 35 grams of protein every day. I am in stage 3 of renal failure.

Jane you said, “There was no meat, milk, eggs, butter or any other sustainable food to be had. Last week, we were able to buy one chicken.”

WOW! Not even perfectly sustainable potatoes, butternut squash, lentils, whole wheat pasta, brown rice.

It’s been years since I ate any of those foods you consider sustainable. My total cholesterol typically flirts with 150, blood pressure 115/72.
I figure my body has enough to contend with what with MAC and Bronchiectasis. I want to spare it the known deleterious impact of animal flesh and lactation products.

I finally was able to buy eggs and some dairy. I have some good Gulf shrimp for today. Yum!

Jane, I'm also Stage 3 CKD so another something we share in common. We are all in this together, yes?

Jane, I’m dining on Humble Pie. Maybe by the time I’m 90 I’ll have learned to not start shooting off my mouth before the circumstances of the situation. My apologies for any annoyance or discomfort I might have caused.

Oh no. No two digestive systems are the same. What works for you just doesn’t work for me. I’m just trying to eat a nutritious diet that won’t give me diarrhea or nausea. Every meal is a challenge for me. I never know for sure if I will retain my meal.

I just got my report back of my blood work and I managed to go from stage 3 to Stage 2. I’m just a few points from stage 3, but I have improved a bit. I am very careful about my diet. I never cheat.

I have been too careful with potassium in my diet. My latest blood work shows that I am a point too low in potassium. I don’t want to become hypokalemic, so I ate potatoes for dinner today. I will add some more forbidden foods in my diet, but not to excess.
