Kidney diseases are not to be taken lightly. What looks to be a ‘slightly higher creatinine’ can mean a considerable higher reduction is kidney function. If creatinine is building up inside your body and not getting excreted through urine, then your kidneys are not working fine. If this is a new condition, you need to consult a nephrologist at the earliest possible.
If this is an existing condition and you are on any kind of kidney medication, chances are your immunity will already be lower making you susceptible to the new coronavirus which is proving to very infectious.
Also, you need to understand that hospitals in every department are already stressed in the pandemic situation. So, if you have a sudden renal failure it will be very difficult to get full attention.
