Dialysis can be a life-saving technique for the individual whose kidneys are unable
to remove toxic waste and excess water from the blood. But over time, the process
can become both physically debilitating and psychologically difficult. To address these
issues, kidney specialist Dr. Rich Snyder has written a complete guide to dialysis.
This book not only provides answers to common questions about the process, but
also offers practical advice and strategies, as well as complementary options that
can help you deal successfully with the many aspects of your treatment plan.
The book begins with an introduction to dialysis—what it is, how it works, and what
types are available. It then goes on to discuss the importance of blood tests, common
medications and their complications, and associated disorders. Crucial information is
included on natural supplements, lifestyle changes, nutrition, and effective coping
tactics. For most people, dialysis is an unplanned and uncharted journey. In this book,
Dr. Snyder lights the path ahead by combining compassion with rock-solid information
that can make a real difference in your health.
