Eric Feigl-Ding @DrEricDing · KIDNEY FAILURE—Bad #LongCovid kidney damage in even non-hospitalized w/ no prior kidney problems 2x higher risk of developing end-stage kidney disease, vs never had #COVID19. That’s “+7.8 extra people needing dialysis or a kidney transplant per 10,000” with mild/moderate.
Kidney damage is serious. And costly. And debilitating. I’ve discussed it before – but the drop in kidney function from #LongCovid is not small. See below Quote Tweet
Eric Feigl-Ding @DrEricDing · Sep 9 “Who needs healthy kidneys anyways”—is what folks who ignore #LongCovid / don’t care about mild infections are de facto saying. New study (in a top nephrology journal) finds huge drops in kidney function if #COVID19 infected, even if not hospitalized! https://jasn.asnjournals.org/content/jnephrol/early/2021/08/25/ASN.2021060734.full.pdf?with-ds=yes Show this thread
