More About the Author

Dr. Townsend is a blood pressure guy at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. Although my primary medical training is in kidney diseases, I spend most of my time pursuing the "why" of the circulation. The 100 Q & A series I wrote (or co-wrote with associate Dr. Debbie Cohen) resulted from the pursuit of answers to the "why" in the adventure called "clinical medicine". Many thanks to those patients whose stories and experiences helped shape the "why".

If you have CKD, do not read this book!

This was the first book I purchased and read about kidney disease since I was diagnosed with the condition a year ago. As the book cover suggests, this book does provide questions and answers however the book is more 'clinical' and less 'supportive' or helpful in my view. I was disappointed after reading this book because I was looking not only for an 'understanding' of my newly diagnosed condition but also sympathy support and specific guidelines. The book present a dismal outcome for the disease which suggests dialysis and inevitable premature death which only heightened my sense of anxiety. If you're in the earlier stages of the disease, you're better served by focusing on your health and diet. I've started working with a naturopath and a functional doctor who treats my body not just my symptoms. I'm find it essential to optimizing my health since my experience with traditional medicine (which includes nephrologists - those 'experts' in the field of kidney disease) has not been so supportive. I still work with a nephrologist for testing and overall monitoring of my kidney function, but I now have limited expectations regarding their support. I believe their narrow area of focus and specialization precludes them from seeing the 'bigger picture'. If you have other health conditions, such as I do, you might want to consider alternative sources of support that provide relaxation techniques, dietary and lifestyle modifications. I have found the blog Low Sodium Girl and Meals that Heal Inflammation (although not written for CKD specifically) very helpful. As I have said, I have not found sufficient support within the "kidney expert" community (this book is a prime example) and have found other sources more helpful and useful. Good luck to others with CKD. I know it's not easy.
