Nephrologist’s advice against Kidney diseases

Two Consultant Nephrologists have said that early detection through regular screening and treatment would reduce the risk of kidney diseases.

Doctor Theophilus Umeizudike of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, said that the diseases were also becoming common among teenagers and underscored the need to screen teenagers.

He said if we start screening early enough, changing lifestyles including diet and regular exercise; it will not put many people at risk.

He urged people who were at risk of kidney disease including hypertensive and diabetic patients and people with sickle cell disorders to screen at least once in a year.

Also commenting, Doctor Olugbenga Awobusuyi, said that a lot could be done to save lives if the disease was detected early.
