While many people live for years on peritoneal dialysis after kidney failure, it could well be indicative of a much more serious underlying ailment. In his weakened state dialysis could prove to be too much for Chavez’s weakened immune system.

Hugo Chavez in hospital 'for kidney failure'


The leftist, staunchly anti-US stalwart Chavez went into the Military Hospital in Caracas on Tuesday morning, the report on the newspaper's website said, citing anonymous sources with knowledge of the case.

"He was in fairly serious overall condition," a source told the Miami-based Spanish-language daily. "When he arrived, he was in quite serious shape and that is why he was brought in for emergency care."

Venezuela's Information Minister Andres Izarra appeared to deny the report in a posting on the micro-blogging website Twitter.

"Those who should be admitted are the journalists of the Nuevo Herald, except into a madhouse (instead of a hospital)," Izarra tweeted, without providing further details.

On Sunday, Chavez sought to assure Venezuelans he was healthy, telling them that cancer-fighting chemotherapy treatment has not left him with any debilitating side effects.


Is this the end for the plucky banna republic dictator?

Umm it was reported widely in the Media just a few short months back that he had cancer and was in Cuba for therapy. So...

Yeah I think it's indicative of a much more serious underlying ailment

I wonder how many people will be grabbed off the street to be tested as possible involuntary donors?

I got a prediction.

Chavez dies in under a year. Whatever it was that our government or our allies did to him will kill him and maybe never be detected.

Cheers!

Yeah! Right! I'd say it was that first class Cuban medical care that did him in.

I wonder just how long it will be before we start hearing others here scream Mossad, MI6 or CIA did it!


I'm personally not a fan of his politics, but I don't wish cancer or liver failure on anyone.

"I don't know what you are talking about." We wouldn't do something like that to someone we consider a threat, would we??

Cuba's Medical system is actually pretty good overall, I wouldn't be knocking them on that one. Knock them on Politics but the health system there seems to work for the vast majority of it's citizens. Statistically, it's on par with the US and other developed nations.

Wouldn't be surprising with colon cancer, wouldn't take much for sepsis to happen and happen quick and in a fatal manner.

If true, we are talking days, even hours, not weeks here.

I'm far from rich and my healthcare is fantastic. My family and I are with United Healthcare. I had back surgery a few years back that would have cost me 75 grand. All I had to pay was a $460 anesthesiologist bill

What a load ... we all know that there are no rich in Cuba. Being a socialist state, everyone is equally poor

i might remind u all, that Castro's Free Education System,, is indeed paying dividends,,
nobody said Cubans were not compitent, doctors,
just can't take that knowledge, with you into "capitalist" countries.

Health System,, hey , its working??

free education ALL the WAY, i say,,
but then who would fund HARVARD and YALE,,?etc,,,,

So our healthcare is so great that it costs a whole year of wages for a surgery???? For some people it would be even more than that. To me that sounds kinda messed up. Sorry for getting off topic.
