Kidney Dialysis Treatment

Kidney disease can affect anyone of any age. Some people are born with a kidney condition, whilst others acquire it later in life. Every year in Malaysia, more than 4,000 people start dialysis treatments because their kidneys have stopped working and dialysis is needed to remove extra fluid and waste from their bodies. Most patients starting on dialysis are unprepared for how demanding it is and they frequently wonder if they can ever adjust to it.
