A medical officer at the Upper East Regional Hospital, Dr. Emmanuel Akatibo, has cautioned the public, especially the youth, to desist from activities that could cause harm to key internal organs. Dr. Akatibo said this while discussing the new Renal Dialysis Center in the Upper East Region on A1 Radio.

The lead convenor for the establishment of the dialysis centre was worried about the consumption of certain drinks and foods. He said it’s better to learn from people’s experiences rather than trying to experience the same process, which has unavoidable consequences.

“Now our young people who want to live certain lifestyles, drinking a lot of energy drinks, mixing medications, exploring other things that you don’t even know the content of – you have to know that your body can tolerate that for a while, but when it gets to a certain point, it fails you. And it doesn’t give you a sign during the time when it’s tolerating it. It can only give you a sign when it’s failing. And by that time, it’s too late. You can’t reverse it.”

Dr. Akatibo mentioned that it’s difficult spending four hours of productive time on a machine trying to get your body to function well, hence the need for prevention.

He also emphasized that hypertension patients should pay attention to the disease and should not allow themselves to be deceived by fake drugs because hypertension has no cure.

“If you have hypertension, get it under control. Don’t let all those people who say they can cure this deceive you, because by the time you realize it’s not cured, it might be too late and it will have advanced, affecting your kidney,” he added.
