Some kidney patients refuse treatment and choose to die
Every year, some people choose death over dialysis when their kidneys fail.
Without dialysis to clear toxins in their body, they are unlikely to survive long.
But there are others who are forced to forgo dialysis because they cannot afford it, or because their families said no.
At the Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH), 24 patients suitable for dialysis declined the procedure in 2011.
