Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Dr. Phillips's experience with kidney patients at the Center for Coping with Chronic Conditions enriches this guide to renal diseases. The functions of the kidneys and the options for dialysis or transplantation are described. The emotional impact and lifestyle changes necessitated by renal failure are covered extensively. Diet, medication, pain, and financial impact are also discussed. The chapters on interacting with people include information on pregnancy and caring for children with kidney failure. The final chapter speculates on future developments in renal medicine. This has much useful information. Recommended for larger health collections. Robert J. Schmid, Univ. Health Sciences/Chicago Medical Sch. LRC, North Chicago
