Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a growing public health concern in Malaysia. With the number of CKD patients expected to significantly rise in the future largely due to the increasing prevalence of diabetes, hypertension as well as the ageing population, the National Kidney Foundation of Malaysia (NKF) has launched a CKD Education Centre at Pusat Dialisis NKF – Rotary Damansara, in Selayang.
Officially opened in December 2021, the CKD Education Centre aims to provide first-hand information and support regarding dietary and lifestyle changes; also assisting patients in choosing the right renal replacement therapy – be it kidney transplant, peritoneal dialysis, haemodialysis, or palliative care.
Patients who would like to do home monitoring of sugar (glucose) levels and blood pressure can also borrow a glucometer and / or blood pressure set (sphygmomanometer) from NKF’s CKD Education Centre.
Patients diagnosed with CKD in both early and late stages are welcome to make an appointment with the centre’s CKD nurse and renal dietician.
For more information, email email@example.com or call 03-6137 1884 (Sister Amy) to make an appointment. A referral letter from a doctor / general practitioner will be required.
