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. This builds up toxins in your body, which gets released in the blood stream and cause life threatening symptoms like uremia.
However, it is not advised to go for extra checkups. If you are taking kidney medicines, your immunity will probably be on the lower side.
Additional lab visits may increase the risk of unnecessary exposure. Any kind of kidney patients are already listed as high risk patients for Covid19.
It is necessary to consult your doctor, take your medicines regularly and get your checkup done in the same periodicity as you were doing before the pandemic struck.
