Fighting The Silent Killer 500 Times a Month!!

  • 05/10/2015

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.

While Waiting for the Ship of Thesus…

Manoj, just sixteen years of age, is our youngest patient. He lost his mother when his younger sibling was born. Poverty and ignorance caused his mother’s death. His father, a D group employee at Infosys lives with his two children in Raja Rajeshwari Nagar. Manoj had a spinal surgery 5 years ago and went into renal failure due to complications. He was referred to us by a doctor at the Victoria Hospital and has been undergoing dialysis for the past one year at the Raja Rajeshwari Hospital. The saddest part is that there is no cure for renal failure other than dialysis or kidney transplant. Manoj obviously cannot afford the transplant. He is strapped for dialysis throughout his life. Manoj says with a smile that all the staff is very friendly here. His father is very grateful as many of the tests and consultations are done free of cost and dialysis is conducted in a clean environment!
