Covid-19

In connection with endocrine diseases

General information

People with endocrine (autism) disorders have the same risk of contracting Covid-19 compared to the rest of the population. However, they are at a higher risk of dying from it. Therefore, special protection is necessary.

More information can be found at the DGE (German Society for Endocrinology). The form for vaccination prioritization can be found here. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by e-mail.

Thyroid disease: Continue thyroid hormones unchanged. Adrenal insufficiency: increase hydrocortisone temporarily up to 100 mg/day (2/3 in the morning, 1/3 in the evening); possibly intra-venous hydrocortisone continuous infusion.

We ask for your feedback for research on the course of Covid-19 in connection with (rare) endocrine diseases.
