According to a new study, COVID-19 symptoms that persist long after infection, known as “long COVID”, has been tied to a higher risk for new kidney problems.
Analyzing data on more than 1.7 million U.S. veterans, including nearly 90,000 COVID-19 survivors with symptoms lasting at least 30 days, researchers found the “long haulers” were at higher risk for new kidney problems compared to people who had not been infected with the coronavirus.
