What is Long COVID?
The typical duration of a COVID-19 infection spans approximately two weeks on average. This insidious virus predominantly targets the respiratory system, often inducing severe breathing difficulties, such as pronounced shortness of breath. However, what is particularly disconcerting is that a subset of individuals continues to grapple with debilitating symptoms long after the initial infection has cleared. This prolonged manifestation of symptoms post-COVID is what we now recognise as the enigmatic “long COVID.”
Long COVID is a complex condition characterised by a persisting array of symptoms that endure for weeks or even months beyond the initial infection. Medical professionals typically diagnose long COVID when individuals continue to struggle with these symptoms for more than twelve weeks after recovering from their acute COVID-19 infection.
Beyond the realm of long COVID, there is also a less frequently discussed condition known as “medium COVID.” This classification applies to individuals who experience lingering symptoms following a COVID-19 infection but within the initial twelve-week timeframe. These individuals find themselves navigating a unique landscape of medium-term challenges that can significantly impact their overall well-being.
At Nadcell Clinic in Glasgow, we recognise the intricate and multifaceted nature of post-COVID-19 health concerns. Whether you’re dealing with long COVID or medium COVID, our team is dedicated to providing comprehensive support and tailored treatment options to address your specific needs. We understand that these lingering symptoms can take a toll on your quality of life, and we’re here to offer potential pathways towards relief and recovery.

Symptoms of Long COVID
- Loss of taste and smell (periodic or permanent)
- Insomnia and sleep disturbances
- Memory and concentration loss
- Depression and anxiety
- High temperature, fever, and chills
- Nausea and stomach cramps/pain
- Aches and pains
- Headaches, brain fog, and dizziness
It is not considered long or medium COVID if you have symptoms that can be explained by another illness. This is the case even if symptoms are related to COVID-19, such as pneumonia, costochondritis, or post-viral fatigue.
The most common of these ongoing symptoms for long COVID is fatigue, which involves feeling tired even when well-rested, and inflammation. Because fatigue and inflammation are two of the main symptoms, scientists are considering NAD+ therapy as a treatment option to help those with a long COVID diagnosis to recover.
Why Do People Get Long COVID?
We are in the early days of long COVID, but scientists are investing substantial time and effort in identifying why long COVID impacts some people who were infected and not others. We know that one problem is an overreaction from your immune system, which leads to inflammation through what is known as a cytokine storm.
What is a Cytokine Storm?
Cytokines are proteins that signal cells to fight a virus or infection. These proteins are normally at appropriate levels to fight an illness, but COVID-19 seems to cause too much of a release of these proteins. This leads to an overreaction and severe inflammation, which persists long after the COVID infection is over.
One area particularly affected by this ongoing inflammation is the olfactory bulb — the part of the forebrain that deals with smell, taste, and memory. This is believed to be part of the reason why we lose our taste and smell with long COVID. It can also explain the brain fog and depression experienced by many with the condition.
Treatments such as NAD+ therapy may help alleviate some of these symptoms.

What is NAD+
Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) is a coenzyme that exists naturally in our bodies to control our metabolism, stress reactions, and inflammation levels. It does this through sirtuins, which regulate the body’s energy and insulin levels and help to prevent age-related diseases.
While NAD occurs naturally in our cells, our NAD levels can decline for several reasons. It can decrease naturally with age or due to nutritional stress, such as obesity, for example.
NAD+ deficiency can have many side effects, including fatigue, memory and concentration loss, nausea, headaches, and breathlessness.
How NAD+ Affects Long COVID
The Search for a Long COVID Treatment
With 1.2 million people still feeling the effects of long-haul COVID symptoms, there is a scramble to find treatments.
Recent discoveries have shown people with low levels of NAD+ are more vulnerable to long COVID, suggesting that NAD+ may be a promising supplementary treatment. NAD+ declines naturally as we age and as a result of medical complications such as diabetes, obesity, or hypertension. Doctors have noted that people with these health problems commonly suffer from long COVID symptoms.
NAD+ deficiency could be a ‘unifying hypothesis’ — a theory that explains more than one medical problem. This means that low levels of NAD+ could be contributing to long-term COVID symptoms.
How NAD+ Can Treat Long COVID
Given the findings from NAD+ research, there are several ways that a NAD+ IV treatment could be beneficial to people struggling with long COVID, because it may be able to assist with:
- Improving energy and metabolism to combat fatigue
- Reducing inflammation, a core cause of long COVID symptoms
- Resolving NAD+ deficiency, which can be a cause of certain mental health issues such as depression and anxiety
- Helping with rehabilitation for alcohol overuse, which can contribute to symptoms of long COVID

NAD+ IV for Long COVID Symptoms
For individuals seeking relief from the persistent and often perplexing symptoms associated with long COVID, Nadcell Clinic offers a cutting-edge solution: NAD+ IV infusion therapy. This innovative treatment involves the administration of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide, or NAD+, which is meticulously dissolved in a sterile fluid and delivered directly into your bloodstream via an intravenous drip.
The magic of NAD+ lies in its ability to bind with proteins, a fundamental process that gives rise to essential enzymes crucial for bolstering metabolism and mitigating inflammation within your body. By harnessing the power of NAD+ through IV infusion, we aim to provide a multifaceted approach to addressing the lingering effects of long COVID.
The potential benefits of NAD+ therapy are twofold. In the short term, many individuals experience a notable increase in energy levels, which often translates into a reduction in persistent fatigue—a hallmark symptom of long COVID. This immediate relief can significantly improve your day-to-day quality of life. In the long term, NAD+ therapy holds the promise of contributing to overall health and well-being, serving as a holistic solution that not only alleviates specific symptoms but also supports your body’s innate capacity to heal and rejuvenate.
The journey towards post-COVID recovery can be arduous, but you don’t have to navigate it alone. At Nadcell Clinic, we’re committed to providing you with cutting-edge therapies and personalised care designed to help you regain control over your health and vitality. Explore the transformative potential of NAD+ therapy and embark on a path towards a brighter, healthier future. Your road to recovery begins here, with us.
Long COVID Headache Treatment Options
A NAD+ infusion treatment designed to be used to help with symptoms of long or post-acute COVID may support pain regulation or aid in reducing inflammation. This may result in a reduction in the frequency or severity of headaches, as well as chest pain and general body aches, in long COVID sufferers.
In this way, NAD+ may also be used as part of a long COVID joint pain treatment.
Long COVID Fatigue Treatment Options
Chronic fatigue can be accompanied by weakness, emotional apathy, and forgetfulness. This can have an enormous impact on a person’s health and well-being. By possibly boosting the metabolism and supporting mitochondrial function, a NAD+ may work as a COVID treatment for post acute symptoms with an aim to alleviate symptoms such as long COVID fatigue.
This can result in more regulated blood-oxygen levels, which is also why NAD+ is sometimes considered as part of a long COVID breathlessness treatment. For the same reason, NAD+ has been used as part of long COVID dizziness treatment plans.
Long COVID Brain Fog Treatment Options
Common symptoms of long COVID include brain fog and memory loss. Brain fog may cause you to feel fuzzy or mentally sluggish, which can hinder your daily cognitive function. A NAD+ drip infusion treatment may improve concentration and mental clarity, as it aims to restore normal brain cell function.
If you are considering a NAD+ drip for COVID (post acute) or to support your recovery from long COVID symptoms, speak to one of our healthcare professionals.
