On a related subject, I joined the local chapter of the National Kidney Foundation. They sent me gobs of information free and two cookbooks.
I also joined the American Association of Kidney Patients. They sponsor seminars all around the country with a lot of good information.
Both organizations have e-newsletters which contain info on meetings, general information, etc. If you have CKD, worth your time to read. JMHO
Hope this is helpful.
