Any chronic medical condition put you at a higher risk for more severe illness. People with kidney disease are susceptible to higher risk with COVID-19. A little extra care and hygiene can save lives.
A good immune system is the primary defense system to protect you from any infections.
People on dialysis may have a compromised immune system; they still need to continue their scheduled dialysis treatment and should take necessary precautions as recommended by their healthcare team.
Kidney transplant patients need to be extra vigilant. These patients take immunosuppressive medicines, these medicines work by keeping the immune system less active making them vulnerable and hard to fight infections. These prescribed medicines are important however, it is equally important to maintain good hygiene and wash your hands often.
Some of the additional precautions that can help prevent the COVID-19 (especially people in old age):
- reduce the number of trips to the super market, buy your groceries for weeks at a time
- keep a safe distance from others
- wear a mask when in public or in contact with others
- wash your hands as often as you can
- avoid touching unnecessary objects
- avoid crowded places
- stay home as much as possible
In this difficult time, it is not only the extra physical precaution is required. It is important to keep your mind healthy too. It is common to feel sad and depressed in these circumstances. Many great techniques can help manage your stress and anxiety.
