You are not alone.
In Wisconsin, there is a program offered for men and women who have or who are living with someone who has a chronic condition like kidney disease or diabetes. This program is available in every county in Wisconsin and is called “Living Well with Chronic Conditions.” Over a period of six weeks, you will meet other people who live in your area who are learning to change their lifestyle, take new medications, eat differently, talk to family, friends and their doctor about their medical condition. Most programs are free of charge. Call 608-243-5690 or visit the Wisconsin Institute for Healthy Aging to find a program that will be offered near you.
It just makes sense to follow a healthy lifestyle, especially if you have kidney disease.
