Work question : I have pkd 25percent... - PKD Charity for A...
PKD Charity for Autosomal Dominant PKD
I don't think you can. I too have pkd.
My function is similar (was 24 last month) and planning has begun for a transplant.
I work for the NHS so am on the front line but I'm still working although in lower risk areas.
Take care and stay well.
The current UK guidelines for those who are required to shield cover only PKD patients who have had transplant. Or fail into the following categories:
People falling into this extremely vulnerable group include:
Solid organ transplant recipients.
People with specific cancers:
people with cancer who are undergoing active chemotherapy
people with lung cancer who are undergoing radical radiotherapy
people with cancers of the blood or bone marrow such as leukaemia, lymphoma or myeloma who are at any stage of treatment
people having immunotherapy or other continuing antibody treatments for cancer
people having other targeted cancer treatments which can affect the immune system, such as protein kinase inhibitors or PARP inhibitors
people who have had bone marrow or stem cell transplants in the last 6 months, or who are still taking immunosuppression drugs
People with severe respiratory conditions including all cystic fibrosis, severe asthma and severe COPD.
People with rare diseases and inborn errors of metabolism that significantly increase the risk of infections (such as SCID, homozygous sickle cell).
People on immunosuppression therapies sufficient to significantly increase risk of infection.
Women who are pregnant with significant heart disease, congenital or acquired.
Shielding is for your personal protection.
