Two new bloggers join the Global Dialysis team
Global Dialysis is pleased to extend a warm welcome to two fantastic new dialysis bloggers who joined the team this week. The Global Dialysis website is enjoying a huge revival after its revamped search and image was launched to the world stage earlier in November.·

gregGreg Collette is a dialysis user from Melbourne, Australia where he writes the the BigDandMe blog, about living with dialysis from the recipients’ viewpoint. On dialysis for 14 years, off and on, he's learned that regardless of changes in technologies or practices there are some fundamental actions that anyone can take to live well on the Big D.

Greg started BigDandMe blog on Easter Monday, 2009, to help other normal people whose kidneys have let them down (“kidney failure” is so judgmental!) deal with the daunting prospect of dialysis and transplant. Greg has run his own business for 23 years, working first as a technical writer, then as a knowledge and business process management consultant.· He's had two transplants, and returned to the Big D when my last transplant failed in November 2008.··

kamalThe second new blogger is Kamal Shah. Kamal is a hemodialysis user Hyderabad, India. He has been on dialysis for the last 13 years, six of them on PD, the rest on hemo and has been on daily nocturnal home hemodialysis from the last four and half years, doing pretty much everything himself.·

Kamal loves to travel and do short weekend trips or longer trips to places which have dialysis centers. His blogs are full of dialysis stories where he recounts the highs and lows. Goa in India is his personal favorite holiday destination and has two very good dialysis centers.· He is also an IT expert.

Katy Draper, Managing Director of Global Dialysis said "I am delighted to have Greg and Kamal as part of our blogging team.· They tell very real and interesting stories, offering advice, tips and some light relief to those reading their blogs.· I am really keen to feature high quality bloggers from all over the dialysis world and know that they will be appreciated by our thousands of users ever week."
