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.
