“Living Well with Kidney Diseases

On the 2nd Thursday in the month of March we celebrate World Kidney Day to create awareness in our colleagues and society about kidney diseases.

This year the theme was ” Living Well with Kidney diseases”.

We are well aware of Pediatric kidney diseases being different from Adult kidney diseases like structural congenital anomalies, nephrotic syndrome, UTI, hemolytic uremic syndrome etc.

Timely diagnosis, treatment, prevention and follow up is all that we need to have healthy kidneys in kids.

Let us strive together to motivate children to live well with kidney diseases.”

-Dr. Amish Udani Consultant Pediatric Nephrologist B. J. Wadia Hospital for Children, Mumbai
