In Malaysia, the number of individuals suffering from kidney, stroke and diabetes illness is increasing every year and these individuals are affected with these diseases at a much younger age.
An average of 3000 new kidney failure patients every year but only 10% of the non-government servants are able to seek treatment at government hospitals, whilst the majority of patients have to seek treatment at private hospitals or wait anxiously for their turn at the door steps of charitable dialysis centres.
Stroke is the third largest cause of death in our country. An average of 6 people suffers from stroke every hour, which means an average of 2 out of 1000 or a total of 52 000 people is suffering from stroke in a year.
Diabetes is an illness that requires continual care and treatment. It also has been well known to be the root cause of other diseases. Although diabetes is not a life-threatening illness, but a high sugar level in our body if left untreated over a long period of time can lead to serious long term complications. In 2007, nearly 1.2 million of people have diabetes in Malaysia, more than half are not aware they have diabetes.
