What to do…?

We are often asked by patients what to do when there is renal disease, how to prevent its progression into End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD), a stage when life sustaining dialysis or a renal transplant would be required. We are also asked if there is “ene comprime ki kapav prend pou pa fer dialyse”. The solution is simple and lies in the hands of the patients themselves.

Firstly a proper lifestyle, with regular exercise, no smoking, no alcohol, healthy eating habits helps greatly to prevent or slow progression into ESRD.

Secondly, if the patient has Diabetes Mellitus, Hypertension or other diseases, these should be treated and controlled.

So, the answer to ” si ena ene comprime….?” is very simple and lies in the hands of the patients itself.
