More than 400,000 people in the United States undergo kidney dialysis. If you or a member of your family are one of them, then the prospect of a regular appointment with a dialysis machine may seem like the end of life itself. But that reaction couldn't be more wrong. In Dialysis Without Fear, psychiatrist and dialysis patient Dr. Daniel Offer joins with his wife, Marjorie Kaiz Offer, and daughter, Susan Offer Szafir, to reveal how life can be lived--and lived well--on dialysis. Drawing on his long medical career and more than seven years of personal experience with dialysis, Dr. Offer dispels many misconceptions surrounding this treatment, explaining how you can adapt to the new diet, travel, work and continue to partake in life's joys and celebrations. But the fears and hardships can be quite real, and Dr. Offer brings his years as a psychiatrist to bear as he provides practical advice on how patients can overcome them. Walking through each step of dialysis, he explains different types of treatment, examines the pros and cons of a transplant, and discusses side effects. Since dialysis affects the entire family, Dr. Offer and his coauthors also provide realistic insights into how relatives can cope and thrive together, sharing the humor, courage, and triumphs of real families who have successfully faced the challenges of dialysis. The result is an inspiring, practical guide that will help you and your family learn to overcome the difficulties of dialysis, live without fear, and enjoy every day.

Following arthroscopic surgery on his right knee in 2006, Jerry Sorlucco faced a choice: Lose weight, or eventually face artificial knee replacements for both knees. His orthopaedic surgeon laid it on the line. At age 69 and 270 pounds, his knees simply weren't going to last much longer; they would continue to break down under the pounding of all that weight. To avoid the knife he would have to lose about a hundred pounds. A feat none of his patients had, so far, achieved in his many years of practice. So, as with many others, the surgeon began to mentally prepare Jerry for the latest and greatest artificial parts that lay in his future. Or so he thought. Breaking the mold, Jerry made one of the most important decisions of his life. Instead of accepting his surgeon's vision of his future, he decided instead to change his manner of living in order to lose weight. And lose weight he did, shrinking from 270 pounds to 168 in somewhat under two years. This is the story of how he did it without feeling deprived of anything, including the martini or two that he enjoys in the evening. True to his style, The Two Martine Diet is not your typical diet book. Jerry reaches out to the more than 60 million Americans, and 300 million people worldwide, who suffer from obesity, and offers them hope and an example of how they, too, can change their life around. Using his research and writing skill he lays out the dangers of our western diet, and the values of eating healthy foods and of physical activity and exercise. While the book is technically correct, Jerry isn't a scientist. Consequently, it's written in layman's language and easy to understand.

As a patient, the author, Mrs. Curtis, relates her own experience in dealing with the renal diet. Through a positive approach, she demonstrates that sometimes when you "make the best of it," the results are better than if the problem had not occurred. Fellow patients will recognize many of the author's feelings and obstacles as their own. The second edition of THE RENAL PATIENT'S GUIDE TO GOOD EATING includes many new dishes as well as nutritional information for all recipes. This should make it easier for renal patients and their dietitians to determine how these dishes can best fit into their diet plans. The analyses can be used as a guide to appropriate serving sizes for each patient's daily allowances of sodium, potassium and phosphorus. Great care has been taken to include complete nutrition information wherever possible. This cookbook is suitable for anyone. It does not separate the "dieters" from others. There will be no whispered requests for the salt shaker because the taste is there, in the form of herbs, spices, wine and other "allowed" flavorings. Especially valuable are the sections where salt is typically relied upon heavily, namely, meat, fish, poultry, sandwiches and vegetables. There are recipes ranging from appetizers to desserts, quick and simple to the more elaborate. The author provides guidelines for adjusting to a healthy heart diet, as well as to renal diets, which require more or less stringency. This book is certain to enlighten and inspire anyone with kidney disease, from the newly diagnosed to the more experienced. With this book, the doctor's answer to his patient's question "Could you give me some more ideas for meals?" can be answered with "I have just the book for you "
