Chinese Man Keeps Himself Alive for 13 Years Using Homemade Dialysis Machine



Consumers who think items made in China are inferior and useless may think twice after reading this —but are cautioned not to try this at home.

A Chinese man suffering from kidney disease, Hu Songwen, has kept himself alive for 13 years using a homemade dialysis machine, UK’s Daily Mail reported.

“The cost for each home treatment is only 60 yuan (£6 or P391), which is 12 percent of the hospital charge for dialysis,” it quoted Hu as saying.

Hu, a resident of a rural area in East China, built the contraption after he could no longer afford high hospital bills.

The machine, used thrice a week, is made of kitchen utensils and old medical instruments.
