Notes

The incidence of final stage kidney disease in Australia is expected to skyrocket in the next decade because of an ageing population and a spike in diabetes rates.

 

The Australian Institute of Health and Welfare believes the number of final-stage kidney disease cases will increase from 11 per 100,000 to 19 per 100,000 people by 2020. The Institute's Dr Lynelle Moon says the rate of new cases of patients being treated with dialysis or transplant is also expected to rise over the next decade by about 80 per cent.

 

This is expected to put pressure on hospitals which provide more than 1 million dialysis services each year. "When people do need dialysis or transplant it really has a big impact on themselves, but also on hospitals in particular when they are treating people," she said.
