Due to a lack of awareness and proper diagnosis, most people report kidney-related ailments when these have reached an advanced stage, which adversely affects the prognosis and clinical outcomes. If early diagnosis is done it reduces the risks and progression of the kidney disease, making kidney diseases preventable. Kidneys are the God-given human organs, which people should take good care of”.
