Implication for health policy/practice/research/medical education:
The increasing number of patients who have recovered from COVID-19 and the growing data regarding the long-term symptoms of the disease require further research. In this letter, we focused on laboratory manifestations following COVID-19 recovery in hemodialysis patients, a subject that has not yet been studied. We identified a high prevalence and diversity of changes in the laboratory values in clinically stable or asymptomatic COVID-19 patients who were on hemodialysis. We believe that the issues discussed here would be reflected in further research to clarify whether these laboratory changes in post-COVID-19 asymptomatic hemodialysis patients should be added to the definition of post-COVID syndrome.
