That means as many as 2.9 million Malaysians may suffer from CKD, which is primarily caused by either diabetes or high blood pressure.

CKD is an irreversible disease primarily treated through dialysis. More than 39,000 patients hooked up to dialysis machines nationwide, with the country recording 7,000 new patients annually. According to the Ministry of Health’s National Transplant Resource Centre, as of June 2019, 20,044 CKD patients remain on the waiting list for kidney transplants, and the waiting time for a deceased donor kidney is between 8 and 10 years here in Malaysia due to lack of kidney donors among members of the public.
