MAYANGAN – Pekan kedua di bulan Maret setiap tahunnya diperingati World Kidney Day (Hari Kesehatan Ginjal Sedunia). Untuk memperingatinya, Promosi Kesehatan Rumah Sakit (PKRS) RSUD Dr Mohamad Saleh membentuk komunitas penderita gagal ginjal, Kamis (14/3).

“Dengan membentuk komunitas penderita gagal ginjal dengan hemodialisa, mereka (pasien) tidak sendirian. Kalau sendirian nelongso banget kan rasanya. Di komunitas ini bisa saling membantu, saling sharing dan memotivasi satu sama lain,” kata Penanggung Jawab Unit Hemodialisa dr Rizki Habibie, saat ditemui di sela acara peringatan World Kidney Day di halaman RSUD.

Komunitas ini juga bisa menambah pengetahuan, seperti makanan apa yang boleh atau tidak boleh dikonsumsi oleh pasien gagal ginjal. Hingga saat ini, pasien gagal ginjal di RSUD mencapai 120 orang.

Selain pembentukan komunitas, WKD 2019 dengan tema pentingnya kesehatan gnjal untuk semua orang dimana saja, juga diisi dengan talkshow, bazar amal dan lomba cipta menu untuk penderita gagal ginjal yang diikuti keluarga pasien.

Wawali Muhammad Soufis Subri menyambut baik didirikannya komunitas tersebut dan berharap pasien dapat terlayani dengan baik. Dinas Kesehatan diharapkan bisa menyosialisasikan penyakit gagal ginjal, agar pola hidup masyarakat bisa teredukasi dengan baik. “Terobosan membentuk komunitas ini sangat bagus. Sebagai wadah agar pasien punya semangat, lebih berdaya untuk melakukan aktifitas,” ujarnya.

Usai seremonial, wawali melihat langsung pelayanan hemodialisa di RSUD dr Mohamad Saleh. Subri menyapa dan berbincang dengan para pasien yang lengannya tertancap jarum dan selang tersambung ke mesin cuci darah.

Wawali mendukung adanya pengembangan ruang hemodialisa agar dibuat lebih nyaman mengingat setiap pasien membutuhkan waktu antara 4-5 jam sekali cuci darah. Ditambah dengan musik instrumental. Ya, tahun 2019 RSUD bakal menambah 7 unit alat hemodialisa dan memperluas ruangan karena masih ada lahan kosong di sisi utara ruang yang ada sekarang.

Dr Habibie: Semua Orang Beresiko Alami Gagal Ginjal 

Dr Rizki Habibie menjelaskan, semua orang harus mengerti tentang ginjal. Karena semua orang beresiko mengalami gagal ginjal terutama penderita diabetes. Diabetes pemicu nomor satu menyerang ginjal, kemudian hipertensi dan infeksi saluran kencing. Infeksi saluran kencing rawan dialami oleh perempuan. Kurang konsumsi air putih bukan penyebab gagal ginjal tetapi termasuk salah satu resiko.

“Melalui kegiatan ini kami ingin memberikan informasi pada masyarakat supaya hati-hati dengan ginjal, lakukan check up. Yang sudah terpapar resiko supaya minum obat rutin, jika tidak bisa kena komplikasi,” ujar dokter spesialis penyakit dalam ini.

Ditanya soal sarana prasarana hemodialisa, dr Habibie-panggilannya- mengungkapkan load pasien sangat tinggi sehingga pelayanan dibuka sampai tiga shift setiap harinya. Pasien yang datang pukul 19.00 bisa-bisa pulang sampai pukul 23.00. “Jumlah mesin memang kurang. Mudah-mudahan tahun ini bertambah jumlah ruangan dan alatnya. Dananya dari BLUD RSUD sendiri,” imbuhnya.

Karakter penyakit gagal ginjal agak unik, menurut dr Habibie. Ia menyontohkan, sakit jantung atau liver tidak ada tindakan definitif tetapi hanya mengurangi gejala. Berbeda dengan penyakit ginjal yang ada cuci darah untuk menggantikan fungsi ginjal.

“Pasien stadium 5 harus cuci darah dan bisa bertahan hidup selama bertahun-tahun. Terapi berkesinambungan, pasien sakit jadi kayak ga sakit. Secara fisik tidak kelihatan,” ujarnya.

Ia pun mengimbau kepada masyarakat untuk mengenal pada kondisi tubuhnya sendiri. Jika memang merasa beresiko segera periksakan ke dokter. “Semua usia bisa terpapar penyakit gagal ginjal. Pasien kami di RSUD ada yang usianya 19-20 tahun sudah cuci darah. Ada juga usia 4-5 tahun cuci darah, itu karena kelainan kongenital,” ujar dr Habibie lagi.

Soal makanan, keluarga pasien harus tahu jika penderita gagal ginjal harus mengonsumsi makanan yang rendah garam dan protein hewani yang cukup punya energi. “Apabila protein terlalu tinggi justru akan merusak ginjal,” imbuhnya. (famydecta/humas)

The second week of March has been the moment to commemorate World Kidney Day (WKD). Therefore, the Hospital Health Promotion (PKRS) of Dr. Mohamad Saleh Hospital formed a community of kidney failure patients, Thursday (3/14).

“By forming a community of kidney failure patients with hemodialysis, they (patients) are not alone. If you are alone, you will feel really bad. In this community, we can help, share, and motivate each other,” said Dr. Rizki Habibie, the person in charge of the Hemodialysis Unit, when he was met during the World Kidney Day commemoration at the hospital.

This community can also increase knowledge, such as what foods may or may not be consumed by patients with kidney failure. Until now, patients with kidney failure at the hospital have reached 120 people.

In addition to the formation of the community, WKD 2019 with the theme of the importance of heart health for everyone everywhere, is also filled with talk shows, charity bazaars and menu competition for patients with kidney failure participated by patients’ families.

Vice Mayor Muhammad Soufis Subri welcomed the establishment of the community and hopes that patients could be well served. The Health Agency is expected to be able to have dissemination on kidney failure so that people’s lifestyle can be well educated. “This breakthrough in forming a community is very good, as a media so that patients have enthusiasm and more empowered to carry out activities,” he said.

After the ceremonial event, the vice mayor monitored a hemodialysis service directly at Dr. Mohamad Saleh Hospital. Subri greeted and had a conversation with patients whose arms were pinned by needles and the hose was connected to the dialysis machine.

Vice Mayor supports the development of hemodialysis room to be made more comfortable considering that each patient takes between 4-5 hours of dialysis, being entertained with instrumental music. In 2019 the hospital will add 7 units of hemodialysis equipment and expand the room because there are still vacant lots on the north side of the existing room.

 

Dr. Habibie: All People at Risk for Kidney Failure

Dr. Rizki Habibie explained, everyone must understand about kidneys, because everyone is at risk for kidney failure, especially diabetics. Diabetes is being the number-one factor to trigger the kidneys, then hypertension and urinary tract infections. Urinary tract infections is mostly experienced by women. Lack of consumption of water is not a cause of kidney failure but is one of the risks.

“Through this activity, we want to provide information to the public to be careful with the kidneys, do a check-up. Those who have been exposed to kidneys, taking routine medication is a must, otherwise, they can have complications,” said the specialist in internal medicine.

 Asked about the facilities for hemodialysis infrastructure, Habibie revealed that the patient’s quota was so high that the service was opened up to three shifts every day. Patients who arrive at 7:00 can go home until 11:00 p.m. “The number of machines is indeed lacking. Hopefully this year the number of rooms and equipment will increase. The funds are from the hospital itself,” he added.

The character of kidney failure is rather unique, according to Dr. Habibie. He gave an example, heart disease or liver had no definitive action but only reduced symptoms. Unlike kidney disease, there is dialysis to replace kidney function.

“Stadium 5 patients must have routine dialysis and can survive for years. With continuous therapy, the ill patient seems to have no disease. Physically unpredictable,” he said.

He also appealed to the public to recognize the condition of their body. If you really feel at risk, immediately go to a doctor. “All ages can be exposed to kidney failure. Our patients at the hospital are on average aged 19-20 have already done dialysis. There are also 4-5 years old doing dialysis due to congenital abnormalities,” said Dr. Habibie again.

Talking about food, the patient’s family must know if people with kidney failure have to consume foods that are low in salt and animal protein to produce energy. “If the protein is too high it will, on the other side, damage the kidneys,” he added.
