Roberto is a man from Guatemala with a renewed lease on life! Though he has had diabetes for many years, he has only recently been able to afford treatment. He has been doing great. However, in addition to diabetes, Roberto also has an enlarged prostate, which has been causing him to have severe problems with urination.

People with diabetes have fragile kidneys, and Roberto is at risk for kidney infections and damage due to the combination of diabetes and an enlarged prostate. He is currently receiving a stop-gap treatment for his problem, but this treatment has its own risks and stigmas.
