Sana

Chennai

Sometimes children behave in an angry way to depict the cause of any health issue with their body. This is the story of Sana who used to throw things when she became angry with someone. The parents went unaware and thought it to be her daily routine to express her feelings like this. Once Sana was having a stomach ache, she appeared to throw things like what she does in every situation. This was the time when Sana’s father asked for the reason and appeared in front of the 5 years old child like her friend.

How did Sana receive help?

  • Sana was happy that her father came to her with the concern of asking the reason behind her anger.

  • At the moment, Sana said that she was not feeling well inside and it made her angry.

  • The parents went to the family general practitioner who had a  few tests on Sana and told her that the child was going through high blood pressure. Thinking that only blood pressure is the reason, the doctor gave her a few medicines to eat with the meal.

  • This time Sana was happy that she received help but soon she started behaving the same way and developed depression-like symptoms like crying, showing anxiety, and behaving as if no one understands her.

  • This became the usual thing for the parents to tolerate. They were still unaware of the symptoms of the disease and even the presence of disease in their only child.

  • Once Sana detected a stomach ache while being in her school at the age of 10. The pain was so intense that she did not have her afternoon meal and did not say anything to anyone.

  • Thinking that Sana was developing depression issues, the parents took Sana to the nearby doctor and asked for help. However, Sana appeared to express her feelings to the doctor and the doctor helped her by referring her to a Nephrologist in Chennai.

With the help of a Nephrologist in Chennai, it was detected that the 10-year-old child was going through kidney issues. She was lucky to receive a kidney transplant and a living donor in the form of her father. The duo had a few hours in the operation theater and it went successfully. Now, Sana has developed her thinking. She expressed all her views to her father saying when and how she behaves in what conditions. The father is now able to take care of the child more efficiently.

Jyoti

Chennai

This is the story of Jyoti, who at the age of 24 became pregnant with her first child. She could hardly remember that during that time, she was affected by the kind of protein which started spilling into her kidney and used to go into the urine. During that time, she developed her concern and came in contact with a nephrologist. She knew that something was abnormal for her but the doctor was handling everything. Meanwhile, she became 29 years old and became pregnant with another child. Although she had the delivery smoothly and nothing happened to the baby, she was having a protein called creatinine that started going up. This time, she was suggested to reach another doctor and seek help.

How did Jyoti receive help?

  • Jyoti, who came in contact with Credihealth, started seeking appointments with a Nephrologist in Chennai. The doctor became conscious of her health and she told her to visit the hospital for better diagnosis and treatment.

  • After she visited the hospital, she came to know that she was affected by a kind of disease called focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS). This is the kind of disease that scars the tissues and affects the function of the kidney.

  • Being confused about what to do and what will be the next step, Jyoti became curious to know about her health status.

  • A Nephrologist in Chennai (through the medium of Credihealth) suggested Jyoti go through a series of dialysis every two or three months which will later be changed to a period of 6 months or more.

On the other hand, Jyoti was informed that once you are affected by the disease FSGS, you will have to stay with it and live with it. In Jyoti’s case, the doctors could find only dialysis as the main helping hand to recover the kidney functions. Jyoti, who was stuck with the responsibilities of her two kids, talked to the local doctor and the nephrologist. She came to receive the support of both and could find that dialysis was the only option for her. Now she is living with the disease and is thankful for the services of a nephrologist who helped her at every step.
