Had a call this morning with my kid's endocrinologist and she said young kids with T1D aren't in an elevated risk group so things feel slightly less stressful for us now.
My doctor sent me this , and tho i know may be snake oil ,he is offering it .....
Well, at least you won’t get scurvy.Here is my plan ... While not wanting to use this as "snake oil" ... I plan on 3-5 g of Vit C in divided dosage throughout the day. It wouldn't necessarily prevent the virus, but might make it harder.
And if sick, I would 2x or 3x that while sick.
The key at that point would be to do whatever to prevent the worst consequences of the virus, like pneumonia.
Again, not saying "snake oil" or "do this and you won't catch it!" But there is much research to suggest the benefit of high dosage of Vit C. Not miracles or cures. But benefits.
Might get kidney stones though. ☹
I think that is an urban legend. I've never seen scientific evidence or studies to show this.
In fact, if you think about it ... it's acid. It would seem like it would do the opposite.
