Stopping Kidney Disease: A science based treatment plan to use your doctor, drugs, diet and exercise to slow or stop the progression of incurable kidney disease

Stopping Kidney Disease is the most comprehensive guide to understanding how your kidneys work and how to make your remaining kidney function last as long as possible. The book includes over 500 pages with hundreds of medical studies to document each part of the diet and treatment plan. The website is www.stoppingkidneydisease.com.

As a patient trying to cure an incurable kidney disease, Lee Hull was not allowed access to a potential life-saving treatment when other patients had access to the same medicine/supplement. He found that outcomes for a kidney patient vary widely dependent on the country and even state you live in. Lee was able to put his kidney disease in remission by using the treatment plan and diet in Stopping Kidney Disease. He decided to write this book and share what he has learned after living successfully with incurable kidney disease for over twenty years.

Lee believes everyone deserves the right to try and stop an incurable disease regardless of where you live or your net worth. The project Kidneyhood.org is trying to provide education and innovation to help kidney patients worldwide slow the progression of their disease.

KidneySteps: 5-step survival guide for people with diabetes, hypertension, or kidney issues

An award-winning, 5-step survival guide for individuals at risk for or with kidney disease, including people with diabetes and hypertension, the two leading causes of kidney disease. The book is written by a kidney transplant donor and a kidney transplant recipient, and is edited by a leading nephrologist. It includes recent research, current statistics, and patient interviews. The book is written in understandable English. The 5 steps begin with “your odds” quizzes to help readers determine their risks for developing kidney disease and surviving the disease, or dialysis, or transplant. Step 2 is devoted to current information on kidney disease and the factors leading to it–diabetes, hypertension, obesity. The subjects covered in Step 2 are progressive, moving from kidney anatomy and function; through disease causes and diagnosis; to dialysis and transplantation. The interspersed interviews, statistics, and applicable research give each chapter variety and add interest. KidneyStep 3 encourages self-management of health conditions and a lifestyle approach. It discusses depression in kidney patients and the often-ignored possibility of death as an alternative to dialysis. KidneyStep 4 is about nutrition and diet and is particularly relevant to diabetes and hypertension, the leading causes of kidney damage. The chapters provide a medically-sound diet plan and recipes. KidneyStep 5 encourages physical activity and provides both beginning and more advanced exercise suggestions designed by an exercise physiologist and demonstrated by the kidney-donor author.

ENALAPRIL Maleate: Treats High Blood Pressure, Heart Failure, and sometimes Kidney Disease Related to Diabetes

“Although, your health condition may impact your everyday life, do not let it define who you are.” Enalapril maleate is used alone or together with other medicines to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). High blood pressure adds to the workload of the heart and arteries. If it continues for a long time, the heart and arteries may not function properly. This can damage the blood vessels of the brain, heart, and kidneys, resulting in a stroke, heart failure, or kidney failure. Lowering blood pressure can reduce the risk of strokes and heart attacks. Enalapril maleate is an angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor. It works by blocking a substance in the body that causes the blood vessels to tighten. As a result, enalapril relaxes the blood vessels. This lowers blood pressure and increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. Enalapril maleate is also used in combination with other medicines to treat congestive heart failure and cut down on the number of hospital visits for heart problems. Enalapril maleate is also sometimes used to treat kidney disease related to diabetes. Talk to your doctor about the possible risks of using this medication for your condition. This medicine is available only with your doctor’s prescription. Thanks and may you have a good understanding about this drug—Enalapril maleate. You may want to share this book with your family and friends who may be in need of help and would want to use this medicine. Take care, and as always, be well!
