WHAT I'M CURRENTLY DOING

Some 11 years ago I was fortunate enough to set up a hemodialysis and kidney transplant programme in Mongolia. Mongolia is in many ways unique. It is large ( three times the size of France ),sparsely populated last three million people and very closely linked families. Because it was politically a positive step in the success of the transplant programme has resulted in successful links with success in democratically elected governments. As in most countries at this present time, obesity new two and inappropriate sugar laden diet and administer exercise has created an increasing number of overweight Mongolians was its consequent burden of disease such as type two diabetes and early onset of coronary artery disease was a consequence of high rate mortality from coronary infarction.

 

Always the full support of the present government we are launching a program of Healthy living education linked linked with a expertly led cardio vascular unit which includes heart transplantation. Two leading heart units based in the UK and Switzerland are providing expert training and short term in-house support. There is, at present in Ulaanbataar) a Korean supported Liver Transplant unit (beginning 2014).

 

I am confident that as in the kidney experience we will  be able  to use  our Mongolian experience in  to the wider field of a severe global problem. I keep in touch with The Cho Ray Hospital  in Ho Chi Min where I was able to initiate a dormant kidney transplant program-now performing more than 50 kidney transplants annually. I retain activity  on a consulting basis both at  National and World Transplant Games  level. My interest continues mainly in weighing the evidence by tracking down the  quite extraordinary properly established links between  physical exercise and specific pathological conditions including cancer. A particular interface is between the immune process and intense physical exertion necessary for high level sport.  Joint studies with Prof Metabolic unit at  Loughborough  University have been  stimulating in this area with the co-operation of leading football teams and Olympic athletes.
