Did you know? There’s an average of 5.5 new kidney failure cases every day in Singapore and 2 in 3 cases are due to diabetes.
Can kidney diseases be treated? Can children also suffer from kidney failure? Will taking vitamins and supplements help prevent kidney failure?
Let’s bust some common myths on chronic kidney disease. Join us for a virtual lunch talk with The National Kidney Foundation (NKF) to learn more about the various causes of kidney failure (e.g. diet, lifestyle and diseases) and the available treatment options in Singapore.
This talk will cover the following:
- How individual diet & lifestyle will eventually lead to kidney failure
- Understanding the top 2 leading causes of kidney failure (diabetes & hypertension)
- What are the different kidney failure treatment options available in Singapore?
- Common myths on chronic kidney disease
