Kidney disease and treatment

Nephrology (the study of the kidney) The day was celebrated in Lahore on October 25, 2019. Due to this, Dharta was Prof. Dr. Waqar Ahmed who specializes in this field I was invited as chief guest. I arrived on time with my colleagues. Dr. Waqar Ahmed belongs to Sheikh Zayed Hospital. There are very fine, friendly people.
The whole hall was full of ordinary conferences, but dozens of people stood by the walls. Since I am from Karachi, I am acquainted with my own college-educated Dr Adeeb-ul-Hassan Rizvi, who has been associated with the Sindh Institute of Urology and Transplantation in Karachi for decades. It is considered as the largest institute in Pakistan.
But here at this conference, I met Prof. Dr. Tahir Shafi and Prof. Dr. Jafar Naqvi, who have two professed nephrology (knowledge of the diagnosis and treatment of kidney diseases). Both these doctors have played a key role in disseminating this knowledge.
Just understand that their sown seed has now become a deciduous tree and many of its top branches have been established. The Pakistan Society of Nephrology is very active in this work and is playing a key role in treating countless people. Some details are available about nephrology and about this society.

What is Nephrology?

Nephrology is actually a branch of medicine within the Department of Medicine that guides the diagnosis and medical issues of kidney diseases. Kidneys cleanse our blood and are an important source of excreta from the body. The kidneys do this through many small filters. What we call Nephron is the education of filters called nephrology. Before 1985, all types of kidney diseases were treated by urologists, cardiologists and medicine.
At that time, there was a serious need for a department that could truly and truly treat the medical problems of the kidney. In the late 1980s, Prof. Dr. Tahir Shafi and Prof. Jafar Naqvi sowed the seeds of nephrology in Pakistan, which has become a thriving tree today.
Background and establishment of the Pakistan Society of Nephrology PSN What is the most important way to deal with any problem or situation is to first understand the root cause of the problem and collect the data associated with it. Gather experts on a forum to develop a robust, integrated, systematic and sustainable strategy so that kidney patients will receive the best and most up-to-date treatment available in the coming periods. Eventually, due to the same thought and struggle, the sun rose on May 18, 1995.

World Kidney Day

World Kidney Day is celebrated on the second Thursday of every year on this day. All the patients and their relatives and the general public are informed about kidney diseases to prevent kidney diseases in society.

A Look at Kidney Diseases

 It is a matter of great tragedy that kidney disease data is not available, so it is difficult to estimate the kidney disease population. However, it is estimated that every tenth patient has kidney disease. If we apply the same data to our country's 200 million populations, there are around 20,000 people annually disappearing?

Major Causes of Kidney Failure

Diabetes is the leading cause of kidney failure in Pakistan, where diabetes covers the entire planet. The number of such patients is about 40-50%. At present, the diagnosis of new diabetes patients in Pakistan is 6-7% which will be 11-12% in 2035. The tragedy is that Pakistan has joined the list of the top ten countries in the world with diabetes.
Thus hypertension is the second leading cause of kidney failure. It is estimated that 26% of Pakistan's population is infected and it is surprising that the majority of them are unaware of the disease.
 As a result, timely treatment leads to kidney disease. The third leading cause of kidney failure is inflammation in the kidney. There are several causes, especially after skin and throat infection or the use of inappropriate drugs. Moreover, Kidney stones, pregnancy complications, and hereditary problems are other causes of kidney failure.
