We knew from the onset that he would need dialysis and a transplant thinking it might be as early as junior high so fortunate his kidneys lasted so long. It must be so hard for anyone who has to go on after a medical crisis and has not been prepare. We were blessed to work with outstanding health care teams. It is a disease that impacts the whole family.

My son had kidney disease since birth. He managed to avoid dialysis until he was 22. He was on PD one year; off a year with residual functioning until he received a transplant-truly the gift of life. IAdter 1 1/2 years he had to go in hemodialysis in-center until I could retire early to train as his care partner on nocturnal. If any members have questions, I would be glad to answer as a person who is impacted by the disease.

3. Keep blood sugar in the healthy range
4. Monitor blood pressure and keep it low
5. Drink enough water to keep your kidneys happy
6. Maintain a healthy weight
7. OTC medications (ibuprofen) are good occasionally but taken daily may injury the kidneys
8. Get the kidney lab results if you have high risk factors
