Losing the function of the kidneys, which are the filters of the body, can cause much more serious consequences in terms of health. First the dialysis process, followed by a long and desperate wait on the transplant list.

Losing the function of the kidneys, which are the filters of the body, can cause much more serious consequences in terms of health. First the dialysis process, followed by a long and desperate wait on the transplant list.

The numbers are that serious. As such, the Turkish Nephrology Association took action. In order to draw attention to chronic kidney disease and to raise awareness in the society, the ‘healthy kidney healthy life’ project was implemented.

Urine analysis, blood pressure measurements and free kidney screening are done through rapid diagnostic tests on the mobile TIR that set off within the scope of the project. The aim is to be one step ahead in early diagnosis with the tests to be performed.

So, what should be considered for kidney health? The “healthy kidney healthy life” truck parked in Üsküdar today will be in Kadıköy for three days starting tomorrow.
