Kidney journey portal
For Patients from the Asia Pacific region with any type of CKD, Chronic Kidney Disease, Baxter Asia Pacific has announced the launch of an online all-inclusive portal. Through this web platform, the global leader in dialysis care will support such patients with basic information about causes, symptoms, and stages and up-to-date information on multiple options of treatment like Home HD (Haemodialysis), Home PD (Peritoneal Dialysis), In-clinic dialysis, and In-clinic kidney transplant.
It also helps not only patients but also their families and other caregivers to deal, cope and deal with diagnosis difficulties and treatment’s demands. It is estimated that CKD, the ‘silent killer’ disease will continue to become a major health problem in APAC and projected that it will affect some 24.3% population of Singapore by 2035, because of the rise in NCDs (Non-communicable diseases), like hypertension and diabetes.
