"Where are all these kidney patients coming from? A few perfection the study of the urinary sediment, clinically years ago we had never heard of kidney disease and now practical kidney function tests, and the natural history of a number of kidney diseases including glomerulonephritis. you are speaking of patients in the hundreds of thousands and indeed potentially millions.
