My name is Dan and I am a Chronic Kidney Failure & dialysis patient. I have been living with CKF (or CKD as some call it) since birth. Over the last 33 years I have picked up a few good tips and tricks to ease the day to day struggle of CKF and dialysis. I decided to share these tips and put this information all into one place.

If you want to know more about me or the site, then take a look at the about page.

Below is my mailing list which I recommend you join to stay up to date with posts. Latest posts are also below, so have a nosy around them.

Finally, follow me on Twitter & Instagram as my followers are all mostly involved in CKF & dialysis and can give excellent advice and more tips! It is also a good idea to share your own experiences and listen to others; to show you are not alone. 

Happy Reading!
