Life on dialysis
In preparation for World Kidney Day (a global health-awareness day focusing on the importance of reducing the frequency and impact of kidney disease) as a part of our project ‘School for patients’ we arranged a meeting for patients called ‘Life on dialysis’. The meeting was held by our company jointly with the Primorsky branch of NEFRO-LIGA – Cross Regional Association of Patients with Nephrology.
During the event, nephrologists discussed and gave an overview of the most important subjects for patients on dialysis. Some of the topics covered methods of correction of anaemia and the prevention of osteoporosis, as well as a special diet for patients with renal disease.
The participants had a chance to talk to the representatives of METACO dialysis centre and have their questions answered, as well as discuss the prospects for the growth of dialysis centres across Primorsky Krai.
Our company strives to draw attention to CKD (chronic kidney disease) and we are continuing ongoing work toward raising our patients’ awareness about modern methods of diagnosis and treatment for renal failure.
