World Kidney Day Celebration - 19th March 2016

We will be celebrating World Kidney Day on 19th March 2016

“Kidney disease can affect children in various ways, ranging from treatable disorders without long-term consequences to life-threatening conditions,” said Dato' Dr. Zaki Morad Mohamad Zaher, adding that acute kidney disease is a serious condition that can develop suddenly, often lasts a short time and may disappear completely once the underlying cause has been treated.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD) tends to worsen over time, even leading to kidney failure (end-stage kidney disease) and needs to be treated with a kidney transplant or blood-filtering treatments (dialysis) for life.
