With the coordination support of the School of Nursing, the National Kidney Foundation provided free kidney screening for staff and students at the National University of Samoa’s main campus at To’omatagi. The screenings were held on April 4th and April 11th between 10 am – 2pm. The process involved urine analysis, blood pressure testing, body mass index calculation, waist circumference measurement and blood analysis (focused on HbA1c and Creatinine). Participants were provided with counseling and advice based on the screening results. Staff and students were enthusiastic that the screening was provided and the attendance was steady throughout the clinic times. Many of the chronic illnesses and conditions which affect Samoans such as diabetes, hypertension and obesity are risk factors for kidney disease. If allowed to progress to the later stages of the disease, a person may require dialysis or a kidney transplant. The good news is that screening can help to detect kidney disease in its early stages, when it can be managed.
