In 2003, Joseph was diagnosed with Chronic Glomerulonephritis with proteinuria++ and occult blood+. Without overt discomforts, he took no treatment. However, 5 years ago, he was detected to have high blood pressure due to symptoms of headache and dizziness. Even with prescribed hypertensive medicines, the elevated blood pressure was not well controlled (fluctuate around 140-210/90-110mmHg).

Two years ago, Joseph experienced symptoms including nausea, vomiting, swollen legs, and was diagnosed with Chronic Kidney Failure in the local hospital. About 7 months ago, he began to undergo hemodialysis. With hope to get better improved quality of life and kidney function, he came to China.
