4,757 coronavirus survivors experienced a 30% loss of kidney function.
Organs of people who have had coronavirus infection and survived may age for decades./p>
So, in a 30-40 year old healthy adult, the loss of kidney function is about one percent per year. Serious infections can lead to more severe or even permanent damage to this organ, or to chronic disease.
And a study showed that 4757 coronavirus survivors experienced a 30% loss of kidney function during one year . According to experts, – this is equivalent to aging an organ for 30 years . This is the opinion of the authors of the work, Dr. Ziyad Al-Ali.
The observations were carried out on the basis of anonymous medical records of the US Veterans' Health Administration, while the patients were predominantly white men aged about 68 years.
Doctors suggested that & nbsp; the kidneys be especially sensitive to various inflammatory processes in the body or to the activation of the immune system . In addition, problems with blood clotting can interfere with kidney function. & Nbsp;
