Baxter Healthcare recently organised the annual Peritoneal Dialysis (PD) Patients’ Outing which attracted more than 300 kidney patients and caregivers from University Malaya Medical Centre, Hospital Kuala Lumpur, Hospital Tengku Ampuan Rahimah, Hospital Selayang and Hospital Serdang.

The event also included an awards ceremony to recognise and honour kidney patients who have successfully been on PD for 10 and 15 years.

“PD has helped me in many ways. I have gained confidence to take control of my life, doing the things I enjoy such as traveling while still being able to do my therapy. The benefits and convenience of PD has provided me with a life that is as close to normal as possible,” said Loh Choong Chuen, one of the award recipients.

This year, a total of 34 patients nationwide were recognised for their determination in managing their conditions. Loh is one of the 29 award recipients who have been on PD for 10 years while another five recipients received the 15 years award.
