Nephrology

The Pains of Renal failure


The mental pain to the patient after the hearing news of renal failure can only be considered as the beginning of the agony that is to arrive soon. Nephrology Centers that provide Dialysis have commercial costs ranging from Rs 1300 to Rs 2000 per session wherein an average person would require 3 of these per week. The high costs are a frightening aspect for most patients. They need to spend 4 hours per session which eats into their work hours and could possibly lead to loss of employment. Additional expenses of about Rs 7000 per month get appended to the list because of medicines, consultation etc. It requires intrepidity and commitment to undergo a major lifestyle change to cope up with renal failure.
