Do You Know If Your Kidney Is 100% Functional?

There were studies done by Fiji Bureau of Statistics in the year 2012 which showed results of screening identified a relatively high number of suspected ESKD. Diabetic nephropathy was the most common cause of ESKD and we cannot deny the fact that Fiji is ranked no.1 in the world for Diabetes, contributing to the high incidence of ESKD.

Pathology tests being processed and Doppler scanning underway at Oceania Hospitals

Fiji has a high rate of end-stage kidney disease (ESKD) with chronic kidney disease currently the fourth leading cause of death.

There were studies done by Fiji Bureau of Statistics in the year 2012 which showed results of screening identified a relatively high number of suspected ESKD.

Diabetic nephropathy was the most common cause of ESKD and we cannot deny the fact that Fiji is ranked no.1 in the world for Diabetes, contributing to the high incidence of ESKD.

 

Improved screening, detection and management of kidney disease should be given more prominence in programmes to address non-communicable diseases in Fiji and the Pacific.

This calls for a desperate need to have the best medical resources available within the country to provide the excellent and affordable healthcare to our people.

Oceania Hospitals plans to setup a ‘DIALYSIS UNIT’ by the end of the month.

 

Having dialysis unit setup at Oceania Hospitals will not only ease patient’s problems but also provide a greater patient experience and convenience.

The aim is to provide an improved health care service (especially acute care) and assistance to patients under one roof at an affordable price.

At Oceania Hospitals we also offer one of the finest diagnostic services to screen such pathologies.

 

We have a state of the art Laboratory which has leading edge machines to deliver the best results.

Oceania Hospitals fully equipped Radiology department caters for Doppler scans – which has the ability to determine the blood supply to the kidneys and rule out any kidney diseases.
