Treatment with corticosteroids (especially prednisolone ≥20 mg/day or equivalent) is associated with an increased risk of infection. However, it is unclear whether corticosteroid therapy is associated with an increased risk of developing COVID-19 or its complications. Data on budesonide, a topical corticosteroid with low systemic bioavailability, show that these drugs are associated with significantly fewer side effects compared to systemic corticosteroids and their side effects are close to placebo. If possible, corticosteroids should be avoided and a rapid dose reduction considered, and a switch to budesonide is recommended. This must be taken into account, taking into account the risk of exacerbation of CKD. If a patient with COPD is in contact with a person with COVID-19 or develops COVID-19, it is recommended to gradually reduce the dose of corticosteroids, the use of budesonide is preferred, but taking into account the severity of COPD and the risk of exacerbation.
Більшість людей з високим тиском не мають ознак або симптомів, навіть якщо показники артеріального тиску досягають небезпечно високих рівнів. В той час деякі люди в разі підвищення тиску можуть мати головний біль, задишку або носові кровотечі.

I rubbed my eyes from the ground and saw that there was a bare bone in the place of the arm, I thought that I should see what was happening with my legs, if I could move. "I thought that I would die, but I was lying, I realized that I would not die for a long time, that I would live and I had to do something, and I put on a tourniquet," the military man says.
If a patient tests positive for SARS-CoV-2 and/or develops COVID-19, discontinuation of biologics should be considered until the patient clears the infection. JAK inhibitors (tofacitinib and others) selectively affect the intracellular JAK/STAT signaling system, which mediates the action of many cytokines involved in the pathogenesis of ulcerative colitis. Unlike genetically engineered biological drugs, inhibition
