Gail Rae's book, What Is it and How Did I Get it?: Early Chronic Kidney Disease provides information about this disease from the patient's viewpoint. Having dealt with many doctors while dealing with a different health issue, I have learned how important it is to understand what all the tests and procedures mean. From my viewpoint, it's also important to know how to talk with your doctor and even more importantly in my opinion to know how to get the doctor to talk with you about prognosis, treatments, and any questions you have. Her book gives you the basic understanding about chronic kidney disease and addresses issues that can puzzle and frighten patients. She gives you her experience as a patient as well as information she's researched trying to find her own answers. A useful resource for anyone dealing with Chronic Kidney Disease.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
