This is a result of the dry skin produced by chronic kidney disease and/or high phosphorus levels. You must use a moisturising body lotion every day and reduce your consumption of phosphorus-rich foods.

It is a record of dialysis patients who are waiting to receive a kidney transplant from a deceased donor. There are currently less deceased donors than patients on the waiting list; this means the transplant waiting time is always growing longer. Patients who receive a transplant from living donors do not have to be placed on the waiting list. Patients can only be registered on a single waiting list for a public hospital. Waiting lists are rigorously controlled and updated with each patient’s clinical and immunological information.
