From the statistic of Dr. Bamgboye, who spoke at St Nicholas’ annual  free health screening exercise, approximately 34 million Nigerians have kidney disease.

A Consultant Physician/ Nephrologist, Bamgboye blamed the ugly trend on the unprecedented surge in cases of hypertension, diabetes and obesity among Nigerians.

“If you are obese, you are likely to have HBP and diabetes. And these impact so much on the kidneys. If you are obese by the time you are 20 you have shortened your lifespan by 13 years,” he said.
