hi all. below is an email i just recieved from my sis in belgium. i thought it shared with all and also please inform your friend in turn.
There is an Indian guy who works here for HP. He was admitted last week to hospital with kidney failure and he was on dialysis. The doctors could not find out why his kidneys just gave way. At last they asked him to get all the tablets he takes so that they could run lab tests on them to find out what had caused this. They discovered that he had been taking Saradon pain killers which caused his kidneys to fail. It seems this was banned from Belgium 15 years back and the doctors were surprised why it was still being used in India. So if you are using this tablet, stop now.
The guy will be in hospital for a few more weeks. 1/3 of his kidneys are gone. The doctors would know in a few weeks if he can continue like this or would need a transplant. Of course he can no more have salt and other dairy products now for the rest of his life. By the way, he is only 28 years old. This is just for your information.
