Milflores Publishing, Inc. has released “My Kidneys and Me: A Layman’s Guide to Kidney Disease” by Dr. Maridel Orata-Gorospe, Dr. Edhel Santiago-Tipon, and Dr. Isabel De Leon-Duavit (Consultant).

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) is a life-threatening condition. To help Filipinos who may be suffering from CKD in its various stages, a team of specialized doctors from the UP-PGH has written this comprehensive, but simple, guide to kidney disease. The authors have drawn on their extensive training and clinical experience to write on a broad range of topics on CKD, including its causes, symptoms, diagnostic tests, various stages, types of treatment, and dietary implications.

This booklet is the first title in a new health series of Milflores Publishing, Inc. that aims to provide expert medical information, in layman’s language, on common diseases and health hazards at affordable prices. Forthcoming titles this year will cover allergies (including asthma, dermatitis, and rhinitis), anemia, and snoring.

The editor of the Milflores Health Series is Dr. Agnes Dominguez Mejia, the current chair of the UP-PGH Department of Medicine and a professor at the UP College of Medicine. She specialized in Nephrology and Hypertension in the U.S. and has won national awards for her work in medical education.

Dr. Jaime Rafael H. Tripon illustrated “My Kidneys and Me.” Elbert Or designed the cover and Zenaida N. Ebalan did the layout.

“My Kidneys and Me: A Layman’s Guide to Kidney Disease” is available at all National Book Store and PowerBooks branches, U.P. Press Bookstore, Solidaridad, Popular, and other major book stores at P120 per copy.
