Long COVID Is More Common in Women

Than Men — Here’s What You Need

To Know About This Mysterious Condition

"Three years into the pandemic, COVID is still an unfortunate reality in our lives. Many of us have also been dealing with long COVID. The various health issues caused by the condition can linger long after a person has tested negative, and while we understand more about it than we did in 2020, we're still learning. Case in point: A recent study published in JAMA, which looked at over one million long COVID cases across 22 countries, found that long COVID is more common in women than men. Additionally, a CDC survey revealed that the majority of people suffering from post-COVID symptoms report difficulties in performing daily activities as a result.

The good news, says Norman Gaylis, MD, a rheumatologist in Aventura, Florida, is that recent reports suggest that the immunosuppressant medications that many PsA patients are currently on may not actually put them at a higher risk for complications from COVID, as doctors initially thought.
