  • Hi

    Sorry to hear your situation CKD is a horrible slight disease and people who don't suffer will never release how it effects a person on a daily basis.

    Not sure if you are a member of the NFK dialysis forum, I have found them a great help as every one on there is either on dialysis or about to start and great to ask question. This forum is a bit more general and found many are in very early stage and not always from the UK so treatment and advise vary.

    Take care
