Kidney Patient Guide

This website provides information for renal patients, their partners and families, health care professionals and anyone else who is interested in kidney disease. It includes information not only on physical aspects of kidney failure - how the kidneys function, what happens when they don�t, and the treatments available - but also on wider issues such as emotional, social and financial implications. The site is designed primarily with a UK focus but will be of value to anyone who is affected by the condition. We hope that visitors will find it a useful source of information and support, and that it will provide an opportunity for renal patients, carers and family to share their experiences and points of view.
