3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Diana Adams on August 17, 2011
Format: Paperback
This book is a find! I've known I have an untreatable kidney disease for many years and have continuously worked to educate myself from numerous sources; each source emphasizing different proactive care for healthful kidney function. I followed all good medical advice from any credible source, but I often wondered whether my efforts were really helping, which effort was most important, and precisely how the efforts may have worked together to nurture my healthy kidney function.

This book pulls together everything that I've wondered. It discusses what the kidneys do, causes and diagnosis of kidney disease, dialysis, and transplantation. It provides current statistics, recent medical studies and patient interviews and is informed by a nephrologist whose name with which I was previously familiar, leading me to readily trust KidneySteps' information. The book begins with quizzes from which I learned previously overlooked facts important for my continued survival. KidneySteps answers many of my questions with succinct, easy-to-understand explanations about kidney function and about the interplay and consequences to kidneys when utilizing healthy nutrition and exercise. It exemplifies the specific harmful effects of poor nutritional choices, dehydration and a sedentary lifestyle. I was surprised to learn that millions of adults unknowingly have kidney disease, and that one's cardiovascular system is negatively impacted by lessened kidney function. I knew about the hypertension connection, but was unaware of the diabetes connection to kidney damage.

The authors' personal stories were touching.

This is an incredibly helpful book. It's given me terminology and clarity in understanding kidney disease. It helped me prepared for a meeting with my doctor by helping me to ask better questions. This book is loaded with important and useful data, diet strategies, biology, stages of kidney disease and more. If someone is in need of more information on kidney disease, this book will be of great help.

I was especially interested in the section on Alport's Syndrome since that is the type of kidney disease the author (and I) have. There was a lot of information on causes of kidney diseases and the benefits of exercise and diet to help delay the onset of ESRD (end stage renal disease). The section on transplants took you through the necessary procedures and explained about the hardship of dialysis while waiting for a deceased kidney donor. I would have liked more on the diet of those like myself who are very limited as to the amounts of potassium and phosphorus they can consume. Most of the "healthy" foods suggested are full of these elements which can prove deadly to someone whose kidneys are not filtering the excess from your system. I am now awaiting contact from the transplant team at a major transplant facility to see if one is feasible for me at my age. Overall, it is an intelligently written and very informative read.
