Long Covid Clinic Dublin / Edinburgh

What is Long Covid?

Long Covid is a term used to describe those who are still unwell at least three months following their acute COVID19 infection. The symptoms are widely varied, as the Long Covid virus attacks many parts of the body. However, the underlying mechanism appears to be brain and nerve inflammation, and most patient symptoms are a function of the damage to the nervous system. With time, some people improve, but many with Long Covid, up to thirty percent in some studies, including studies we have done ourselves at our Long Covid Clinic in Dublin, have persistent pain syndromes, brain fog, head pressures, concentration problems, energy problems, and mood problems. This can be mild or can be debilitating.

The main focus of Long Covid treatment needs to be 'neuro rehabilitation', with training the brain to repair the damage done, and taking medicines and supplements that will decrease the inflammation and repair the immune damage done by the COVID19 virus.

Our Long Covid Treatment Plans

At initial consultation with our specialist, a full history and exam is performed as indicated. Blood tests may or may not be necessary. The treatments are individualised, based on the presenting symptoms, but often include a series of supplements and melatonin which we have piloted in the treatment of Long COVID. LDN appears to have an anti-inflammatory effect, and some kind of immune modulating effect.

A Long Covid treatment plan is designed, and six months of prescriptions are provided for each patient, as this is the timeline for patients to start improving. A repeat appointment is advised at six months.

Professor Lambert Long Covid Expertise

Professor Jack Lambert is a consultant in adult and pediatric infectious diseases with a recent special interest in Long COVID. Dr Lambert worked as director of the Mater Hospital Highly infectious diseases unit, the National Isolation Unit of Ireland, between 2010 and 2018, and the Mater was the first to receive Covid patients back in 2020, and then the first to develop a centre for the follow up of patients with Long COVID in Ireland. Dr Lambert has seen over 1700 patients with Long COVID, and was the recipient of an Irish Grant (health research board) to study Long COVID. Out of this grant has come over 20 peer review publications, including the longitudinal follow up of patients from the 'first wave' and a pilot study on the use of LDN in the support of patients with Long COVID. This has been published in the scientific literature, and recently National geographic magazine highlighted the use of LDN for LC, highlighting a Dublin patient who recovered with LDN being used as part of the treatment regime. The problems with Long Covid are residual brain inflammation, dysautonomia, immune dysfunction, mitochondrial damage, and brain hypoperfusion likely a function of microclot development. Treatment at the Dublin and Edinburgh Long COVID Clinic is focused on targeting all of these pathologies, and providing strategies to repair the damage caused by Long COVID.
