Protect your Kidneys from Novel Corona Virus. Be Kidney Friendly.
Most of the cases associated with Kidney Failures are majorly targeted by Corona Viruses. At the beginning or during the infection, Proteinuria (and/or blood in urine) often occurs and a few patients even develop acute kidney injury (AKI). From this data, it is clearly observed that Covid-19 also attacks the kidneys. The dedicative measures and the efforts taken by the nephrologists are truly appreciated. Since the role of Kidneys play a vital role during the infection of Corona Virus infection, patients should also be monitored after the disease.
The role of Kidneys during the Novel Corona Virus infection is prominent and this clearly reveals that the people who have been tested positive and have developed with symptoms has a severe impact in the involvement of their kidney function.
A high rate of renal abnormalities in corona-positive patients admitted to hospital in which 34% of the 59 patients developed massively elevated levels of albumin in urine i.e., the proteinuria, a symptom of kidney damage 63% of the study patients developed proteinuria while in hospital, and many of them also had blood loss in their urine (hematuria). Kidney function was impaired in 27% of the study population and in 66% of the patients who died from the coronavirus infection. These findings are supported by a second study involving 710 hospitalized patients: On admission, 44% had hematuria and proteinuria (26.7% had hematuria only), and kidney function decreased in nearly 15%.
From the above two studies it is clearly inferred that “This shows that COVID-19 also attacks the kidneys, not just the lungs”.
Patients affected with Covid-19 and sepsis syndrome (regardless of their kidney function) can be treated with Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy (CRRT). At this crucial point of time, we seek the nephrologists to support and guide the patients. Nephrologists from all over the world are completely ready to face and solve this current issue. Nephrologists in all the countries are ready for action and are dedicated and committed to help in this crisis.

Its estimated more than 37 million American adults have CKD. CKD, causes more deaths than prostate cancer or breast cancer. 90% don’t even realise that they have CKD. CKD is more common in women than men.The very basic work of the kidney is that it acts as filters of your bloodstream. When the blood passes through kidneys nephrons filers out the waste products. It removes all the waste products exit your body in the form of urine. Kidneys failure happens when your kidneys are no longer able to filter your blood properly. This imbalance interferes with other systems in the body by potentially causing anaemia and proteinemia while waste products continue to build up.
Kidney Failure Symptoms
Unfortunately, there is no proven evidence for the Symptoms of Kidney disease or Kidney failure. Some patients may show no signs at all, till the time that kidneys have undergone extensive damage and can no longer help them out in anyways.
• Vomiting and Nausea.
• Loss of appetite
• unexplained shortness of breath
• Reduced and Change in amount of urine
• Difficulty in Breathing
• Pressure in your Chest
• Excessive Drowsiness
• Loss of Appetite
Its very important that we listen to our body.
How to reduce risk of KIDNEY FAILURE??
Try to understand when your taking medication, especially when you do a counter medication. Taking doses that are too high (common drugs like aspirin) create high toxin levels in a short amount of time. This can overload your kidneys. Most of the time kidney or urinary tract conditions lead to kidney failure if not properly taken care and managed. You can help reduce your risk for kidney failure by:
• Strictly following your doctor’s advice.
• following healthy lifestyle style modification.
• Proper treatment for common causes such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
• Try and have a healthy work life balance.
• Start improving your overall level of fitness when you get older.
The maximum awareness about the Kidney, helps in prevention of the disease without any doubt and also early diagnosing and proper treatment helps in fighting CKD. Learning and volunteering for organ donations helps in saving lives.
