Kidney Disease Is Milking the Government Coffers - Is Australia Notorious for High Rates of Kidney Disease?

The Federal Management has not got its act together to effectively deal with the escalating costs of kidney disease that is soaring// at an alarming rate- of approximately $1 million a week, and is soon turning out to be a problem of the decade.

A report by the Sydney-based George Institute for International Health speaks about the in Australia as an outcome of the rise in kidney and urinary tract disease in Australia. It was estimated that Dialysis costs would rise from $640 million in 2005 to $688 million this year.

Dr Tim Mathew, medical director of Kidney Health Australia, in charge of launching the study, that lasted about 18 months has revealed some stark observations. From the records of the past 15 years, deaths from kidney collapse have risen by 20%, but rates of stroke and heart disease have declined.

Escalation of Kidney Disease is rather alarming, with the rise not commensurate with the growth in population. People in the risk category are certainly the obese, hypertensive, smokers, and those with a family history of kidney disease, and are diabetics

Kidney Health Australia has propositioned the federal government to rise up to the problem during the May budget session and $4.2 million spread over the next three years for initiating programs focused on creating awareness about kidney disease and prevention measures, along with early detection programs.

In the words of Dr Mathew,” If the projections of expansions continue at their current level, we are going to have to spend an extra $1 million a week just to keep people alive on dialysis. If we don't start correcting that now, the figures will keep on escalating."
