Management of Chronic Kidney Disease [CKD]
Prevention is better than treatment. Those at high risk of Chronic Kidney Disease [CKD] must take preventive measures like periodic health checks, expert advice and must watch out for conditions like kidney stones and tell-tale symptoms like swelling on the feet, face and especially around the eyes. Early detection and prevention of Chronic Kidney Disease among high-risk groups is another very important aim of this clinic. .
Statistics show that in a staggering 50% of patients with Chronic Kidney Disease, primary cause of the disease is Diabetes and / or high Blood Pressure. These conditions are not easy for the patients to recognize and this results in future complications.
Jehangir Hospital focuses on preventing Chronic Kidney Disease in high-risk groups as well as providing state-of-the-art treatment options to Chronic Kidney Disease patients, including Kidney Transplant.
Kidney failure is a silent killer. There are often no symptoms till 80 % function is compromised. Although incurable, the rate of progression of kidney failure can be greatly reduced. Preventive nephrology improves quality of life & reduces cost in high risk groups.
