Quick link: LIVING WITH REDUCED KIDNEY FUNCTION
NEW 8TH EDITION - LIVING WITH KIDNEY FAILURE
©2013 Kidney Health Australia - All rights reserved
It can be a life-changing experience to be told by your doctor that your kidneys are not working properly, and in the future you may need dialysis or a kidney transplant to stay alive. “Living with Kidney Failure: Your Extensive Guide” is designed to be a practical resource for people diagnosed with kidney disease, and is regarded as the basic bible of kidney information written in Australia for Australians.
This newly revised 8th edition of “Living with Kidney Failure” is pitched at people needing to decide about the treatment options for kidney disease, and presents a carefully balanced view of the choices in type of dialysis and location. The new edition has adopted user-friendly spiral binding and writeable pages, and has an enhanced focus on self-management strategies.
In the words of Mr Evan Eggins (Chair, Kidney Health Australia National Consumer Council; CAPD, 31 yr transplant, haemodialysis)......
“This Guide takes you through the whole kidney journey covering the treatment options for kidney disease, all types of dialysis and how transplants work with their waiting list. It also has many real life examples of patient’s stories where you will find an example very close to your own circumstances. This helps you even more to understand the real world of your possible treatment(s). As a fellow kidney patient I commend this Guide to you, as the information it contains will help you better understand your condition and treatment options, as well as improve your well-being and health outcomes.”
