What to Know About Long COVID in Kids
There are lots of outstanding questions about Long COVID. How many people have it? Why do some develop it and not others? Do effective treatments exist?

What to Know About Peripheral Artery Disease —and Its Connection to Diabetes
When we think of clogged arteries, most of us think about the heart. “But buildup of fatty plaques can happen in any artery, including those that carry blood away from the heart,” says Dr. Samuel Kim, a preventive cardiologist and lipidologist at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York.

And the narrowing in these vessels is referred to as peripheral artery disease (PAD), a common condition in which the legs or arms don’t receive sufficient blood flow. “Interestingly, arteries in our legs and...

Is there a link between cholesterol levels and Long COVID?, ZOE Health Study
According to ONS data, Long COVID affects over 2 million people in the UK and 71% of this group report that Long COVID negatively affects their daily lives.
