    DNO I am shocked I just submitted some information on children and adult kidney polycystic disease, I saw it posted, and within. seconds it was remove.

    Oh, my God what?

    You ignorant people make a big deal over the simplest, people get sick, all of us have a disease you have one, you may die from it by keeping it in secrete. Let me educate you a bit, and hope you will learn it is not a crime to be ill. Whereas we know that hypertension (high blood pressure), and hyperglycemia (diabetes) which are very common in Dominica can cause the kidney’s to fail hence dialysis is the alternative; there are other causes such as myeloma k.

    There is also polycystic k., which is a hereditary disease in which there is massive enlargement of the kidney accompanied by the formation of cysts. It occurs in two forms, distinguished by age of onset, and other characteristics. Childhood polycystic kidney disease (CPKD) is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait, and is diagnosed at birth, or in the first ten years of life. It is not as common as the adult form of the disease. Both the kidney, and the liver are involved, causing renal failure, and…

      Both the kidney, and the liver are involved, causing renal failure, and liver failure with portal hypertension.

      Characteristic symptoms early in the process includes pain, hematuria, urinary track infection, Kidney Stone, and obstructive uropathy with anuria. Adult polycystic kidney disease (APKD) is the most common type of renal cystic disease; it is transmitted as an autosomal dominant trait, and is usually manifested during the third decade of ones life. Renal failure appears by the fifth decade, ( which I believe to be at age fifty); with terminal failure occurring in the next ten years. Although there is rarely any liver dysfunction accompanying this disorder, cyst formation in the liver does occur. You can shout OMG as much as you wish, here is the treatment:

      Treatment of both types polycystic kidney disease is largely symptomatic: Re dialysis, and kidney transplant during end-stage renal failure can prolong life; however, offer no cure. No need to for me to explain that…

        No need to for me to explain that if the people who’s name are listed her do not get their Renal dialysis done on regular schedule death might be imminent! The blood have to be filtered, so learn something before you get carried away talking nothing about people business!

      Protected health information (PHI) is any information about health status, provision of health care, or payment for health care that can be linked to a specific individual.

      Sometimes we say the dumbest things, even in times of need for emergency care where dialysis is a life saving & necessary procedure. A public announcement during a disaster is no infringement on a patient right to privacy.

        I agree the system must have in place the protocols of how get in contact with patient through the primary health doctors or nurses rather than calling names my dear. And Yes I am a dumb with Master in Health.
