The small alley No. 121, Le Thanh Nghi street, Dong Tam ward, Hai Ba Trung district, Hanoi has long been known as “Bach Mai people with kidney disease village”. This is the accommodation of 142 kidney patients from many different provinces and cities, most of them with severe kidney failure, having to dialysis 3 times / week. After a few months of treatment, the “people with kidney disease village” members confessed, it was difficult to recognize themselves in the mirror. Besides the scars of AVF (Arteriovenous Fistula) surgery on the hand, everyone lost from a few kilograms to over ten kilograms of their weight. Two things that cause their weight loss are illnesses and strict diet, because any food might be a risk for allergies, hyperkalemia, shortness of breath, high blood pressure, etc .

The long treatment process exhausted them and their relatives from health to economic status. “Those uncles and aunties are dialysis patients who lose 81% of their health, and couldn’t do anything to earn money at all, most of the money is expected to be sent from their homes” – the head of “dialysis village” Mai Anh Tuan shared. The only way to “increase income” of the patients in this neighborhood is to eat less. After hours of dialysis, they walk home, drink water, and lie down. Nutritious milk for them is a luxury, some people in life have never drank milk.

Understanding the difficulties of disadvantaged communities that need the help of the whole society, Nutricare organized “Community health care program, giving 25,000 glasses of milk to 142 patients in Bach Mai people with kidney disease village”, divided into 3 times within 6 months. This long-term nutritional support will help patients improve their health to continue fighting their illness.

Ms. Vu Mai Huong – Deputy General Director of Nutricare said: “Before organizing the milk giving program, Nutricare carefully surveyed, contacted kidney patients, learned about their lives, and considered each disease stage to choose the most suitable awarding product. People with kidney failure have damaged kidneys, making it difficult to filter waste products from protein metabolism. Therefore, unlike people with stage 1 chronic kidney disease who may need to restrict dietary protein intake, people who are under hemodialysis treatment have increased protein requirements.

From that fact, the 25,000 glasses of milk given to patients by Nutricare this time are all protein-rich nutritional milk lines – Leanmax Rena Gold 2, which helps support patients with kidney failure in the stage of hemodialysis, with volume adjustment. Low dietary intakes of phosphorus, potassium and sodium are suitable for this stage.
