Mangaluru, March 11, 2016 :  Speaking at a function organised by the Kidney Patients’ Association,  Health and Family Welfare Minister U.T. Khader on March 10, Thursday  said transplantation of kidney, rather than dialysis, was a permanent solution for those with renal failure. “But it takes a long time for the recipient to get a kidney …. there is also a long list of procedures to be followed before the transplant,” he said.

Being aware of the demerits of dialysis people behave unaware as they cannot meet the cost of the transplantation. The hospitals are commercialized and they give first reference to money and then the patients problem.

Transplantion cannot be afforded by all Sir. Some wish to go for it as the procedure is very expensive they drop it.
