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.Read more ›
