Have you ever wondered what happens to kidney patients on dialysis? Do you know how organ transplants affect the lives of those who receive them... and those whose loved ones donate their organs?
Kidney disease is increasing rapidly. Kidney Research UK estimate at least a million people in the UK have undiagnosed kidney problems. This book contains stories about survivors and real life experiences told by some of those affected. The determination not only to survive but to thrive and live to the full revealed in these stories will move you deeply and sometimes make you laugh. Reading this book will give you an insight into a growing health problem which is still far too little known and understood.
