Most kidney patients want to be involved in their treatment to some degree. To be involved and make decisions you need information. The best source of information is your kidney care team so don’t hesitate to ask questions.
However, sometimes people just want that extra bit of information to supplement what the professionals tell them. There is a wealth of kidney information available; this page signposts you to just some of the resources.
