Impact of Covid-19 on Nephrology

People with kidney diseases and chronic medical conditions are at higher risk of viral infectious diseases. People who are undergoing dialysis have a lower immune system which makes it difficult for them to fight infections. Coronavirus side effects in an acute kidney injury include acute tubular necrosis with septic shock, direct infection to the kidney, and an increase in blood clotting. There are chances the function of kidneys declines after contracting with coronavirus and during infection. Nephrologists have observed high levels of protein in the urine (Proteinuria) in patients having COVID-19. Though researchers and medical professionals have not recommended patients stop using a particular drug, taking precautions is always a must. Getting vaccination shots, maintaining good hygiene, taking medicines as prescribed, consulting the doctor timely is important.
