Synopsis:
Walter A. Hunt knows all too well what it means to live with kidney disease. Here, he shares his experience and knowledge to help people with kidney disease overcome the challenges of diagnosis and treatment. When Hunt learned he had kidney disease, he was overwhelmed by the prospect of facing kidney failure. He had so many questions: Why are my kidneys failing? Is there anything I can do to save them? How will I know when my kidneys have failed? What will it feel like? Is there a cure for kidney failure? The good news, as Hunt found out, is that kidney failure is highly treatable. People with the disease can lead full and productive lives, and this book will help them do just that. In an accessible and compassionate narrative, Hunt discusses the latest scientific and medical issues related to kidney disease, including what kidneys do; the underlying diseases that cause failure; diagnosis, treatment, and prevention; dietary factors; clinical trials; and the future direction of research on kidney failure. People with kidney failure face a difficult disease. Hunt's personal insights will help them take control of their lives. By understanding kidney failure-what causes it, how it may affect their lives, and what treatment options they have-people can take an active role in their disease, improving their quality of life and achieving the best outcome.
