Kidney failure: A Singapore journey

Shared by:

 
Singapore has one of the highest rates of kidney failure across the world, due to increasing number of people being afflicted with diabetes and hypertension. A study has found that people are not at a higher risk of kidney failure or dying if they donated one kidney, and the donor’s kidney function returned to 75% of pre-donation levels after five years for 40% of the donors, and it is hoped that these findings can encourage more people to become living donors.
