    I’m new here!

    Hi, my name is julsgrrrl. I'm here because I am struggling with chronic pain and did 13+ years of ECT and tons of medication. I’m in a new state with very little support and am looking for people with similar issues to relate to

    Chronic kidney disease

    Chronic kidney disease includes conditions that damage your kidneys and decrease their ability to keep you healthy by filtering wastes from your blood. If kidney disease worsens, wastes can build to high levels in your blood and make you feel sick. You may develop complications like:
    -high blood pressure
    -anemia (low blood count)
    -weak bones
    -poor nutritional health
    -nerve damage
    Kidney disease also increases your risk of having heart and blood vessel disease.

    Wellness Wednesday: Updated Kidney Care Guidleines For Diabetes

    Did you know that the American Diabetes Association (ADA) releases updated guidelines for diabetes care yearly?

    The ADA set guidelines based on the latest research that help healthcare professionals provide the best care for you.

    My fellow type 2 diabetes advocate, Megan, recently wrote an article summarizing the latest guidelines for kidney care.

    Hello, everybody! I'm new here!

    My name is jennifercramermiller and I'm happy to be a part of the Mighty community. I've had four kidney transplants over the past thirty-plus years due to an autoimmune kidney disease. I love the Mighty's mission to make health about people, and I'm here for motivation, inspiration, and understanding. I'm also a contributing writer and believe all of our stories matter.#ChronicIllness #KidneyDisease #AutoimmuneDisease

    How do you know if a doctor is a good fit?

    We know good doctors when we see them. Maybe it’s their communication style or something they did that went above and beyond. Perhaps it’s a genuine bedside manner or a doctor who always returns your calls the same day you make them.

    In your experiences, how do you know if a doctor is a good fit for you?

    Supporting my dear friend

    I'm new here!

    Hi, my name is HopePrincess12. I'm here because I am a fairy new CKD patient. I went from being mildly ill to being critically I’ll and hospitalized for over 100 days. I am slowly learning to navigate the waters of this Spoonie life, but want to build a circle of confidantes and friends who understand what it feels like to constantly be fighting to live everyday.
