It's so nice to hear my Dad so excited about his blood results when only a few months ago he was frightened at the thought that he would have to go on dialysis. Please feel free to use me as a reference to anyone who questions whether or not your diet plans work. The results were amazing and we are hoping that my Dad's levels continue to improve as he remains on the diet. Thanks again!!

That being said I found this book to be rather expensive for the information given. Internet searches will yield the same results as reading this book but may be more confusing for many people. Talk to your doctor you should be referred to a nutritionist that can get you started with an appropriate diet for your illness. I thought I was going to receive some diet instruction tips that would help me with managing my chronic renal failure so I went to the website mentioned in the book. Much to my surprise it was to an advertisement to join the website for $19.95 a month. Ultimately as some others have pointed out the book seems to be the gateway to this persons paid website.
Perhaps the diet plans and grocery lists are very useful and a godsend to some people who just don't know where to begin, but as I said earlier there is a lot of information available online that you don't need to spend additional money for. Davita.com is one of them. You can log in I suppose. But I never joined their site and have obtained a ton of recipes with nutritional information from them.
Another book you can get from Amazon which I found to be quite good was the book "Coping with kidney disease" my nephrologist recommended. I don't follow the ultra low protein diet recommended in that book. But it has a tremendous amount of very useful information.
This is a rather long winded review but I wanted fellow sufferers of chronic kidney disease to know how I felt. This book receives 2 stars because it was a good synopsis of the basics renal disease patients should know. But the cost for the amount of information given and it being a gateway to a paid website is unacceptable.
All in all, the brief summaries of some causes and related diseases are just that... a summary, not really tips.
