In the coming 10 years, the numbers of victims suffering chronic kidney disease requiring dialysis or transplant is predicted to increase.

The increasing number of people coming down with diabetes is also seen as a major contributor for the spike in kidney disease.

This might exert pressure on hospitals, which  may not be able to effectively handle so many patients suffering chronic kidney disease.

This is a sad state. People should be made aware of the complexities of kidney failure, then there is a better chance to protect people from falling prey to chronic kidney disease.
