NCD Chronicles #17: “I Want To Survive…For My Family”

How do you go from being an active 44-year-old, to suddenly discovering you have end-stage kidney disease? On this episode of NCD Chronicles, we get a glimpse into Ezi’s life with chronic kidney disease, and how home-based peritoneal dialysis has given him the freedom to continue living a normal life. Consultant nephrologist Dr Azrini Binti Abdul Aziz weighs in to highlight innovations in peritoneal dialysis that have improved the monitoring and support for patients remotely, but also calls for renewed attention on the prevention of chronic kidney disease and end-stage renal disease.

This episode of NCD Chronicles is brought to you by Baxter Healthcare Malaysia: The Kidney Care Journey in the Modern Era.
