I'm ok - my condition doesn't stop me doing any of the things I want to do



Everybody's medications are individually tailored to meet their kidney condition. During the transition process we will talk more about your medications, helping you to manage these independently and understand why each one is important and what it does to keep your body well.

Some commonly used medication and what they are used for can be found here. You might also find information on the InfoKID and Kidney Care UK websites. Always talk to your renal team if you have an concerns or you want information around what you are prescribed and why.

You may find you are only on one or two medications or a full range of different medications to manage your kidney condition. Immunosuppressant medications and steroids are often used to manage different renal conditions as well as people who have recieved a transplant. Supplements such as vitamin D and phosphate as well as medications to remove excess phosphate in your body may be needed to help your body if your kidneys are not working as well as they should be.

It can be useful to know what to do if you happen to forget to take a medication, get confused, or are sick after taking medications.  All these are common and the nurses and doctors can suggest the best way to manage when this happens.

If you have any questions about your medication then your Consultant or Nurse Specialist will be happy to answer these.
