Helpful Books

As you may already know, I’ve written a book with the same name as this blog.  It’s in publication right now, and as I was going over it to make corrections, I realized you might find one, two, three or perhaps all of these books and articles helpful in understanding your disease, even though some are fiction. 

They are books and articles I looked at in preparation for writing the book.  Some of them are extrememly technical, some simplistic, and some go way past early stage. I especially liked 100 Questions  & Answers about Kidney Disease and Hypertension as being none of these for the most part. Inclusion in this list is not a recommendation, just notice that these books and articles exist.
