The Hyderabad Kidney Foundation is organizing patient support group meetings on the last Saturday of every month at 5 p.m. at one of the centers of NephroPlus dialysis centers. This month is the first such meeting. Its on Saturday at 5 p.m. at NephroPlus' East Marredpally center. You can get directions to the location here.

What will happen at these meetings?

Well, first there will be introductions which could be as simple as "Hi, I am Kamal" or as detailed as "Hi, I am Kamal, 25 years old, on hemodialysis for x years, followed by PD for y years, transplant for z years. I am currently working for ABC company and my hobbies are e, f and g". Totally up to you!

Then I was thinking one featured patient will share his/her story and we could have a brief Q&A. Then we could share common problems and solutions. In the end we are trying to rope in a nephrologist/dietician/expert to talk a little about one important topic followed again by a Q&A. We'll round it off with tea and biscuits. All in all, an hour and a half max.

Of course, we're open to suggestions on the format and we'll go with the flow and keep tweaking it to suit everybody's taste.

So, if you're on Hemodialysis or Peritoneal Dialysis, have received a transplant, have donated a kidney or have any other type of kidney disease and are around Hyderabad / Secunderabad on that day, we would be happy to meet you!

Hello, I'm Kamal from Hyderabad, India. I have been on dialysis for the last 13 years, six of them on PD, the rest on hemo. I have been on daily nocturnal home hemodialysis for the last four and half years. I can do pretty much everything myself. I love to travel and do short weekend trips or longer trips to places which have dialysis centers. Goa in India is a personal favorite. It is a great holiday destination and has two very good dialysis centers.
