Renal/kidney problem, it has been on rise lately. The death of Ada Jesus has been attributed to kidney collapse. Though some folks attributed that to some curses and magic wand but let us look at it closely. Can we at least downplay these superstition. We can start asking questions like why and how? May her souls rest in peace! It can happen to anybody ,please let’s not attribute this to anything, we have kidney issues today in the country and our young ones are dying of it! We are loosing talents and there should be lots of sensitisation!

Kidney (Renal) failure (acute or chronic) occurs when the kidneys no longer function well and the end stage of kidney failure. Your kidneys may be small, but they perform many vital functions that help maintain your overall health, including filtering waste and excess fluids from your blood. Serious kidney disease may lead to complete kidney failure and the need for dialysis treatments or a kidney transplant to stay alive. While effective treatments are available for many kidney diseases, people are sometimes unaware that kidney disease can often be prevented. The following are the ten major causes of kidney disease.

Within 3 yrs ago I have seen many of my young friends and very very close folks like 4 of them died of kidney failures. These guys are like between 22yrs to 25yrs max! This is the highest. I am talking of personal experience. I lost one again just late last year , she was 25!

The truth is that kidney failures are high these days and unfortunately the medical community is always busy going on strike that is for those that are still in the country , well I don’t blame them, they are underpaid and work environment terrible….while the National Orientation Agency (NOA) are still trying to grasp on what to sensitize people. But the truth is that we have a renal and kidney epidemic in Nigeria. Young people are dying of kidney I have 4 of them just last 3 yrs and they are within 25yrs old, not more than that.

It is a lifestyle issue. If you are close to these youths today especially the artistes and those that want to blow , you will see the high drug useage. from codeine to rephnol, from Arizona to Colorado and funny enough they publicise this in their music and movies. Stick around these young folks…. The function of kidney is like a filter. It filters these drugs but when it can’t , it collapses !

I was in a restaurant somewhere in Ikeja just few days ago and I overheard some young boy saying that he is high from the Colorado that he took and he needs to eat! I am talking about 9 am in Ikeja ! This is what it is. Go to Aboki shop and you will see how they sell these drugs like codeine and rephnol, thy drink skushi and it is laced with drugs …these are prescription drugs and these young folks take these stuff for getting high. But no matter how they try to get high, they can’t be the most high! These drugs goes to kidney

Another issue is our dulling pharmacists, they have no idea what is over the counter medication and highly prescription drugs. Go to chemist or pharmacies you can buy a high dosage of anti biotics and analgesic drugs ! These goes a long way to add to kidney problem issue in the country.

What about those women selling agbo ! These ladies use industrial alcohol (ethanol) for their agbo! Agbo is a herbs laced with roots and soaked with some alcohol sold by dirty women in dirty plastic and using cups. Then you can imagine what they sell and what the gullibles drink! Then they will take some alabuku or whatever to high them, the men take a lot to sustain erection and make them o 5 rounds…as if they are doing some sexual Olympic! That’s madness! They should go audition in the porn industry not some innocent girl.

You see the NOA has a lot to do in the area of kidney failures ! I domt want to talk about those that bleach! Bleaching contain some terrible chemicals and these chemicals enter the body through the sweat pores and then it heads straight to the blood stream and the function of kidney is to filter it. Then imagine those women that go to market and mix their creams !

So my dear people don’t blame any pastor or person for Ada Jesus, we must start asking why the kidney malady is high! When kids were having sickle cell they were attributed to be ogbanje by Igbo or Abiku by Yoruba it is basically sickle cell. You know the human nature has a way of attributing what they don’t understand to some surreal or supernatural whatever. We saw that in 666 and Corona virus with 5G!

We must understand that we have kidney challanges in our hands and the medical communities and government isn’t doing enough sensitisation.

If we can avoid foreign foods , fine, if we drink, let’s drink in moderation and take enough water to flush our kidneys. We must as a matter of fact know the kind creams we use, don’t tone (toning is subtle way of saying bleaching) are you toning, is your skin carburettor?

In addition, healthy lifestyle changes, such as losing weight and regular exercise, often help to control, and may even help to prevent, high blood pressure.

Take note of the urine…if you were, look at it ! “When kidneys are failing, the increased concentration and accumulation of substances in urine lead to a darker color which may be brown, red or purple. The color change is due to abnormal protein or sugar, high levels of red and white blood cells, and high numbers of tube-shaped partic”, Speteurology
