While there are many things we do not yet know about Long COVID, BHC’s years of clincial care and research experience can help inform patients and healthcare professionals as they approach the diagnostic and managed care of those with post-viral illness presentation.

***COMORBID CONDITIONS***

BHC’s 2022 new patient enrollment coming soon. Status updates will be reflected on the  Clinical Care page.

Bateman Horne Center joined over 80 partners in the fight to find answers for Long COVID and post-viral illness. The Long COVID Alliance launched by Solve ME/CFS Initiative, is a network of patient-advocates, scientists, disease and public health experts, and drug developers, who have joined together to leverage our collective knowledge and resources to educate policy makers and accelerate research to transform our understanding of post-infectious illness.

Identifying Commonly Comorbid Conditions

In the past, a diagnosis of ME/CFS was made by first excluding all other possible conditions. However, the 2015 National Academy of Medicine report established ME/CFS as a positive diagnosis that can coexist with other conditions, including those in the differential diagnosis. Recognizing comorbid conditions early and treating appropriately may improve the patient’s health, function, and quality of life. *Content is directly from the U.S. ME/CFS Clinician Coaltion*
