Project #120:
Long-term kidney outcomes following hospitalisation with Covid-19

  • Type: Research
  • Topic areas: Risk from COVID (short term) [e.g. hospitalisation/death]

In our previous research using a study called ISARIC, we studied people who became unwell with Covid-19 and had complications related to their kidneys. We found which people were most likely to have kidney complications and what effect this had on their survival. In this new project, we will study whether kidney complications are unique to Covid-19 or whether similar problems develop from other infections. We will also study the long-term kidney effects of being unwell with Covid-19. These subjects are important because complications related to kidneys are the most common amongst people with Covid-19. We need to know more about what impact Covid-19 has on long-term kidney health.
