Kidney disease continues to hurt US

Kidney failure is a big issue in the United States. Kidney transplant is the only effective solution for this crisis. What makes the solution inaccessible to most affected is the lack of availability of donors.

A kidney failure patient, if not offered the service of kidney transplant, will have to spend hours before a dialysis machine.

That is not easy.

The sad reality is that even if the effort is put the said alternative cannot be a replacement to an effective kidney transplant.

As per a latest report, one in seven adults in the US suffers from kidney issues. Unfortunately, the things are getting worse day by day.

It is high time for the US government to interfere in this issue.

In a sense, kidney failure is a lifestyle disease. It can, to an extent, be prevented if some lifestyle changes are brought in.
