Alcohol

Everyone reacts differently to alcohol.

Your height, weight, sex and medications are just some
of the factors that play a part in how alcohol affects you. Even what you had to eat that day or how much sleep you've had recently can make a difference to how you
feel when you drink.

To keep health risks from alcohol to a low level, the UK Chief Medical Officer has advised that it is safest not to drink more than 14 units a week on a regular basis.

You can discuss what is safest for you with your doctor.

Illicit Drugs

We cannot condone the use of illicit drugs but we do recognise that people can make mistakes and get themselves in to a situation that they later regret.

Need help? It's OK to talk.

 

Remember – you have a right to confidentiality from your doctor.

 
Counselling & Social Support

We understand that kidney disease can be life changing,
not only for the patient but their family members and carers too. Beverley, Sheila (for counselling) and Michelle (for social support) are here to help!
