Book Review: Prevention and Treatment of Chronic Kidney Disease and Kidney Failure


Being diagnosed with Kidney Disease can be quite a traumatic experience; being put on dialysis even more so. Many of us are not even aware of what kidneys do. Then suddenly, our lives are turned upside down. All our plans are shattered and we have to deal with something so unexpected, so horrific that we are unable to come to terms with what has hit us.

In times like these, we all wish we could learn more about this disease. For most of us, this is going to be a lifelong journey. A journey that we wish we could have avoided. Now that we are firmly on it, we could do with some help.

This is where a book like this by Dr. Prashant Dheerendra comes in handy. Devoid of all the technical jargon that is beyond the understanding of those newly diagnosed with Kidney Disease, this book explains the basics in a language that you and I can understand with ease.

The writing style is not lengthy prose but concise bullet points. This style allows us to easily digest what we need without getting overwhelmed. 

Dr. Dheerendra, the author is a reputed nephrologist in Bangalore and has very kindly made the book available as a free download. You can get the book by clicking on this link. Hope you find it useful.
