New Delhi: Early detection and prevention is the best option to manage the rapidly rising chronic kidney disease in India, doctors said Wednesday on the eve of World Kidney Day."Kidney disease often goes undetected because symptoms may not appear until the organs are actually failing. Those who have poor diabetic control, high blood pressure, smokers and have a family history of chronic kidney disease should do early detection by simple urine analysis and blood test," said Dinesh K. Dhanwal, a professor of medicine and an endocrinologist at Maulana Azad Medical College.The experts were sharing their views at a conference ahead of World Kidney Day Thursday.According to doctors, nearly one percent of country`s population is suffering from some kind of kidney disease and 1.5 lakh patients are adding to the number every year, needing dialysis or transplantation of kidney.
