Doctor in the House: It’s Time To Talk About Kidney Transplants

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. According to the Ministry of Health, it was estimated that there would have been 51,000 patients with end-stage kidney disease on dialysis last year. Unchecked, the number could rise to 100,000 by the year 2040. However, dialysis isn’t the best treatment option for people with kidney failure – a kidney transplant is. Yet why are there so few kidney transplants in Malaysia, and what can we do to improve the rate of transplantation?
