Chronic kidney failure and awareness

Editor: Please permit me a space in your newspaper to express my views about chronic kidney failure and awareness. It is a fact that some persons are really dying from the chronic disease, and for many years, as a matter of fact, because during the time when I was growing up, the death rate from kidney disease was relatively high and nothing much was basically done about it.{{more}}

The situation now is apparently not different, because we still have the same kind of scenario over and over again, where persons are practically dying because of the lack of proper medical treatment, and something they cannot afford.

Persons who are currently living with the chronic disease may not know much about it, and that is why they should immediately seek medical treatment, in order to prevent sudden death.

The immediate symptoms that normally occur are the swelling of the feet, vomiting, shortness of breath, lack of appetite, urinating quite frequently, and abnormal breathing.
