Kidney Disease : Keep Multiplying.
June 3, 2016 11:52pm CST
Every time I have my treatment at the center. I can't help not to think of people like me suffering from kidney failure. And I always asked myself these. How long are we going to survive this kind of illness? Is there a cure for this aside from transplant? The bad news is. NONE! No one in the medical world knows how to prevent this. Although there are a lot of experiment where being made and none so far are working. While a lot of patients are keep on multiplying. This kind of illness is not just for adult. Also kids can have this. The youngest we have in the center is 10 years old. Supposedly that kid should be out there playing or even at school. But in order for him to be okay at the moment, he needs to be in the center for four hours,twice a week. I pray that someone will continue to keep experimenting the cure for this. Because we want to live more. We don't want this. We never like this. Sad to say it just happened. Do you know someone suffered the same case?

Kidney dialysis is a very physically draining procedure that MUST be done in order to keep the patients kidneys working and that patient alive; I worked with a nephrologist for part of the decade I was working with 7 other doctors as their physician assistant/ medical receptionist -- it was brutal to see BUT there are doctors out there who DO KNOW that curing this condition is possible but to encourage people to prevent it means they will have no income . . . I urge preventative maintenance on our bodies by listening to what it dictates through blood type, personality, astrological sign, environment, addictions, habits and sleeping cycles . . . if it is all balanced and pH of the fluids is mostly alkaline, the health is strengthened overall

I have many and one of this was my husband's co worker, He has to undergo dialysis 3x a week and got kidney transplant 3 years after, his son was the donor, it was a successful operation, he returned to work after 2 years but sad, he also returns back his vices like drinking liquor, eating raw fish, eating junk foods and after a year from returning, the kidney he got from his son had infection and less than a year, he passed away but I think if he didn't return to his bad vices, I think he is still alive this time.

The good thing about having a kidney transplant is, you can live but what worries me is the maintenance. Maintenance is hard to attain because although you have a new kidney you still undergo treatment like medicines. If only medicines are free once a transplant was done it would be muc easier for us. He should have stop the wrong doings. Sad to say he didnt make it because maybe he thought he can still do those things. But it's not. He should be aware of the foods to eat and his life style. Feel sorry for him.

I feel sad about kidney patients too. Even if the facility is there, and they know that they can prolong their lives by going there for treatment week after week, many poor people still worry about their livelihood. It is hard to take leaves all the time, and they need money for the treatment. Even if the charities are paying part of it, or all of it, they still need the money to travel there, and the time spent means they have to cut down on their work.
