Kidney Disorders Affect Cuban Population
Monday, December 4, 2017



Havana.- Kidney lithiasis, caused by the presence of stones in the kidneys or the urinary tract, affects 8-12 percent of adults in Cuba.

According to nephrologists, that ailment also affects 1 percent of Cuban children.

In order to counter the incidence of that disease, Cuba's healthcare system has four endourology and lithotripsy centers in Havana, Santa Clara and Santiago de Cuba.

In addition, 99 percent of patients can undergo endourological minimal-access and laparoscopic surgery, as well as shock-wave treatments.

As a preventive measure, physicians promote the ingestion of three-five liters of water a day and non-abusive consumption of red meat, seafood, canned fish, dark fish, salt and refined sugar.
