Kidney Failure: A Silent Killer

Dra Pamela

By Melanie Lansing

Kidney failure is the second cause of death among people with high blood sugar levels. According to the World Health Organization, 10 percent of the global population has some degree of kidney failure. However, due to the increase in the prevalence of diabetes, hypertension, and obesity, it is estimated that kidney failure is becoming a worldwide public health crisis.

The condition strikes silently, giving its victims the impression that they’re healthy while their kidneys become irreparably damaged. Most people don’t know that they’re affected until they’ve lost considerable kidney function.

The good news is that kidney failure can be prevented, and measurements can be taken to delay its progression. In most cases, early detection allows for better treatment and patient outcomes.

On January 11, Dr. Pamela Vazquez will present a medical lecture on “Kidney Failure: A Silent Killer.” She will discuss the risk factors, symptoms, preventive measures, and treatment for kidney failure.

Dr. Pamela Vazquez received her medical degree from the La Salle University. She completed her medical residency in Internal Medicine in Mexico City. She also has a degree in nephrology from the Cardiology Institute. She is a member of the American Society of Nephrology and the Mexican Institute of Nephrology Research. She also directed a nephrology training program at the Universidad Autonoma de Querétaro. She is the Medical Director of Médica Santa Carmen, a kidney, dialysis, and renal care clinic in San Miguel de Allende.

Dr. Vazquez will present on Thursday, January 11 from 4–5:30pm in the Sala Quetzal at La Biblioteca. We ask people to RSVP beforehand. Please email or call MX Cell 415 108 0810 or Vonage 1-800-654-1356 to notify us of your participation. Cost of the session is 100 pesos.

This medical lecture series is presented by Peace of Mind in San Miguel and H+ Hospital San Miguel. Every second Thursday of the month, local board-certified doctors will offer key information on how to treat and prevent chronic illness, accidents, and common ailments.
