The Real Story:

My brother had a kidney transplant and the cause for kidney failure is hypertension. From the childhood he used to be very tired after a play and we all use to think that he is tired because of heavy play. That was the only visible symptom for a long time. The local doctors however advised my father to get him through check up and my father ignored. My brother passed a medical entrance exam and got admission in medicine. My father high the fact to medical interviewing team with the fear that he may not get admission. He is admitted and during his study time his pathology professor suspected symptoms of renal problems and advised to have a thorough check up in a super specialty hospital under the guidance of a neurologist. He did so and the expert told that there is a scar like thing on the kidney and suggested him to go for biopsy. My brother, with his half knowledge in medicine ignored his advice and ended with kidney failure after two years under the same doctor who suggested biopsy.

He got transplanted and many other complications developed and he died out of pancreatic problem. Why I mentioned this whole story is that being a doctor he ignored his health, Because of his sheer negligence he lost his life. It is my humble requests to the readers- “Please do not neglect Diabetes and Hypertension”. If you are tired, thirsty often consult a doctor. Do not self medicate
