Interesting Article: Ten Mistakes People ... - Kidney Disease
That may be the best list for patients I've seen. Not every one of the 10 things is needed at every appointment but it's a great place to start.
This list is very helpful. I will definitely consider it when I go to my nephrologist tomorrow. Thank you.
Hi there Bet117!
This is an excellent article. Another title of it could be: "Words I would say to my younger self." This article is great for younger people like I was at age 36, who have never been ill, or always worked jobs that didn't provide insurance. When you suddenly become ill, it can send you in a tailspin as there are so many new life adjustments all at once. This will save people ill or healthy a lot of time and give them a sense of control knowing what mistakes to avoid as these are all so common. Thank you so much for your considering sharing this. This is a great reminder for myself as well as this is a great way to center yourself when you are under so much incredible stress. I bookmarked this article for myself. Also, I never knew Healthgrades had articles. I only looked them up for doctor ratings. Thank you for that education as well!
So good to see you!
Have a great day!
I wasn't allowed to read this article in my area ie member of the EU. The UK left the EU a few days ago!
thanks for sharing - I would add - recognizing the doctor is a joke and not running away fast , find another
Thanks for this link, Bet!
All 10 are important but perhaps most significant to me of all of them is the last #10 sentence:
"Remember, being proactive gives you more control over your care".
I have just 'Clicked', this link and been told that I can't access this- as my country is 'Member of the European Union'. Firstly, as of a few days ago, we are NOT and Secondly what Difference should THAT make anyway?
Can you please advise me further? Many thanks
Let me get back to you. Luckily one of my closest friends is a resident of the UK, let me check in with her.
I am also going to try to send this to you in a private message and see if you can open it from there.
Let's see if this works. Will send it to you in a private message.
Let me know!
