In spite of the humongous service being rendered at the Diabetic Centre at Muthappa Attavar Hospital, Dr. Asha and her team felt that a lot of work needed to be done still: “We realized that there was no help for people who go into end stage renal failure. The rural folk struggled to commute to the city for dialysis.”
A pilot study was done in and around Raja Rajeshwari medical college covering 30 kilometres and we found that 14% of the population were diabetics and 2% had gone into renal failure which translated into 2000 subjects who needed dialysis. We wanted to address this issue and decided to set up a Dialysis Centre at the Raja Rajeshwari College and Hospital, where we have additional facilities of ICU, Services of RO Plant and 24/7 monitoring of Renal failure subjects.
