Manitoba has the largest number of people with kidney failure, Iryna Chyrkova

Manitoba has very high levels of people with serious kidney disease. According to the report made by the Canadian Institute for Health Information, only Quebec cans how worse situation.

Manitoba has very large differences between in its population, probably this fact can be the number one reason for so many sick people. In addition to this, there are too many people having diabetes. The province has the highest rates of diabetes as the major disease in people with kidney failure.

Over the past 10 years, the number of people with critical kidney disease has increased by more than 30%. The manager of the Canadian Organ Replacement Register at CIHI explained that the provincial government should pay more attention and take active measures to prevent and to treat diabetes among the population.

Also, the state should raise people's awareness to make them change the quality of their lives for the better. First of all, it is about healthy eating, exercising and leading a healthy lifestyle in general. These factors can slow down the disease and prevent its occurrence in healthy people.

The report, which was published on Monday, shows that about 70% of people received a donor kidney and were able to continue their life without dialysis. The report also showed that patients who received a kidney from a living person underwent a rehabilitation process more quickly than those who received an organ from a dead donor.

Across the country, there more and more people are ready to give their kidney to people in need: doctors have been observing a 50% increase over 10 years. However, about 240 residents of Manitoba did not receive a donor kidney and died in 2017.

Currently, more than 4,000 patients are queuing for kidney transplantation in Canada. The government of Manitoba raises people's awareness of how they can save the lives of other people in all possible ways.

“The only way we can have more kidney transplants completed is to have more kidney donors. So having Canadians consider registering to become an organ donor, and also having that conversation with their family members to let them know what their wishes, would be very important." – the representative of CIHI stated.
