I have a kidney failure, will there be complications with legionnaires' disease?

Possibly: Kidney failure is one complication of untreated or severe legionnaire's disease. However, people with kidney failure are more susceptible to get this disease due to lowered immunity and co-morbid conditions. Not everyone with kidney disease will get it though.
Dr. Ram Reddy
Geriatrics 41 years experience
Yes: Any infection can be more serious in kidney failure.

Yes: If untreated, kidney failure will lead to death. Even when treated, we cannot completely replace the good work that kidneys do, ultimately organs will fail, and death will occur.
