I am currently working as a health coach (background as a dietitian) and I am seeing a young girl in her twenties who contracted Legionnaires’ a couple of years ago.
She has ongoing problems with fatigue. Are there any specific treatments, supplements, or dietary approaches you would recommend to help with her fatigue?
Chronic fatigue for more than one year after apparent recovery from Legionnaires’ disease is more common than realized. My advice is to return to work soon after Legionnaires’ disease treatment has ended and after consulting with your physician.
I would recommend to gradually increase activity and exercise to pre-illness levels regardless of fatigue (within reason); ideally, supervision by a trainer or a physical medicine rehabilitation professional would be ideal.
