Study: Men More Likely to Develop Kidney Failure

 

A study by Dr. Tanvir Chowdhury Turin and Dr. Brenda Hemmelgarn of the University of Calgary, Alberta found that men are at a higher risk of kidney failure than women.

While there was 2.66 per cent risk of middle aged men developing kidney failure, women faced a lower risk at 1.76 per cent risk.

About one in 40 middle-aged men and one in 60 middle-aged women will be diagnosed with kidney failure if they live to be 90, the researchers say.

I wouldn´t believe everything doctors say. My honest opinion is that if there is no pain, there´s no failure.

There is no pain with cancer until it´s too late to treat it.
