Written by SOT.COM.AL 4 Dhjetor 2020
Chronic kidney disease is the leading risk factor for hospitalization by Covid-19, says an electronic health data study. According to the study, chronic kidney disease was more strongly associated with hospitalization. Patients suffering from kidney disease and affected by Covid-19 were 11 times more likely to be hospitalized than patients who did not have kidney problems.
Does kidney disease put you at higher risk?
People with kidney disease and other serious chronic medical conditions are at higher risk if they become infected with Covid-19. People on dialysis may have weaker immune systems, making it harder to fight infections.
It is important to know that patients who have kidney problems should continue with their regularly scheduled dialysis treatments and take the necessary precautions as recommended by their healthcare team.
People with a kidney transplant should take anti-rejection medication. These drugs work by keeping the immune system less active, which can make it harder to fight infections. It is important to keep taking these medicines. It is important to wash your hands, maintain good hygiene and follow the recommendations from their healthcare team.
Are there any special precautions that someone with kidney disease should take?
Adults and people with kidney disease or other severe chronic medical conditions appear to be at higher risk of becoming infected with COVID-19. Some tips they should consider are:
-Take daily precautions to keep the space between yourself and others
-When you go out in public, stay away from others who are sick, limit close contact
-Wash your hands often
-Avoid crowds as much as possible
-During an outbreak in your area, stay home as long as possible.
-Please remember that if you are on dialysis, you should not miss your treatments. Contact your doctor if you feel sick or have any questions or concerns.
If you have a kidney transplant, it is important to remember to continue taking anti-rejection medication, maintain good hygiene, and follow the recommendations from your doctor.
