Free Kidney Screening Reveals Concerning Results For Some, 09 March 2017


With it being World Kidney Day on Thursday 9th March, Ethekwini Hospital and Heart Centre (EHHC) together with Fresenius Medical Care offered free education and screening for over 100 people on the day.

 

EHHC Hospital Manager Niresh Bechan said, “For us it is imperative to give back to our community and to ensure that we raise awareness of the importance of our kidneys to our overall health. With offering this free screening we are able to empower people to know their kidney’s health.”

The success of the screening was seen in the results, with 113 people being screened of which 10 were confirmed to have stage four kidney disease (severe kidney disease) and two were in stage three kidney disease (mild to moderate kidney disease).

 

According to Fresenius Medical Care SA, Nephrocare Coordinator KZN, Adelisa Francis the day was really a success. “We were pleased to be part of Ethekwini Hospital and Heart Centre’s Initiative. The patients that were found to be in stage three and four were educated by me and reactions were different some very emotional and others understanding of their condition. There is a technique of educating a patient, especially for the public attending a screening for this kind. It is very important that they understand the condition and for me educating the patient psychologically and emotionally is very important, said Adelisa.


EHHC has two resident specialist nephrologists Dr Suman Maharaj and Dr Kamal Maharaj and is a super specialised hospital which performs kidney and heart transplants. EHHC is currently setting up a renal dialysis centre of excellence with Fresenius Medical Care which will be ready in a month.
