  • Kidney School

    Omg, I love it!

    I have seen a few people here mention it and I decided to check it out for myself. I breezed through the first 3 modules and passed the quizzes without a problem. A lot of the information I already knew from research or talking with the Neph.

    Can't wait to finish the other modules. I highly recommend Kidney School to anyone that is new to Kidney Disease and is plagued with questions.
    Boyfriend is the renal patient:

    Diabetes completely controlled with diet
    Hypertension better with the new med schedule.

    PD as of 7/25/2011


    Finally got the call on 12/20/2011 that he has been listed at Cedars Sinai.

                  This looks like a fantasic site- thanks for recommending it. I also would like to recommend http://www.handwrittentutorials.com which I found extremely helpful for understanding the basics of the kidney.
