On the occasion of World Kidney Day, which falls on February 14, Pakistan Kidney and Liver Institute and Research Center (PKLIRC) wishes to raise awareness about chronic kidney disease (CKD), which was rapidly spreading in Pakistan, with 17 million patients already. The theme of this year's World Kidney Day is "Kidney Health Everywhere and Everybody".

"In Western countries, this kind of disease is actually under the insurance health scheme so that when people come down with such disease, the insurance takes about 70 per cent of the cost". Because kidney disease usually has no symptoms until the late stages, simple blood and urine tests are the only ways to know how well your kidneys are working. NIDDK's Kidney Precision Medicine Project aims to collect and analyze kidney samples from a broad range of people in an effort to identify targeted treatments for kidney damage from chronic kidney disease and acute kidney injury.

"The Ministry of Health, health workers and others are doing a commendable job to deliver good quality medical service to our patients with kidney disease". Yet, if diagnosed timely, kidney damages can be slowed or even stopped with proper treatment. "During the screenings we can detect persons who have high levels in these areas and have them referred to a doctor on site for further checks". "Smoking, obesity, toxins and pain-killer drugs etc are other risk factors for kidney ailments, which can be prevented", he said.

In case the disease gets worse, waste starts building up in blood, making problems like high blood pressure, weak bones, a low red blood cell count (anaemia), poor nutrition and nerve damage more likely.

Also, a trader, Doris Ominisan, said the free screening had provided opportunity to many people in the community who do not have financial capability to run such test.

Dr SA Jaffar Naqvi, the co-founder of the Kidney Foundation, said that there could be no awareness possible without education and the health sector could not be improved without proper education. This can make it hard to get a good night's sleep at night.
