Hudhud times: Kidney damage is painless and silent, and it’s the latest ailment to be identified afflicting a large swath of Covid-19 survivors.
Injury to the blood-filtering organ can occur among people who recover from the coronavirus at home, and escalates with the severity of Covid, a study found. Even non-hospitalized patients with no renal problems have almost a twofold higher risk of developing end-stage kidney disease, compared with someone who never had Covid.
The data show 7.8 extra people needing dialysis or a kidney transplant per 10,000 of these mild-to-moderate Covid patients. https://www.hudhudtimes.com/
