It was published yesterday, 16th December 2013, scientists in Australia have managed to develop a kidney from stem cells. The kidney is only a few millimetres across, but it heralds a major advance in stem cell technology and the development of human organs. The forecast is that in 3 to 5 years time they could grow a large enough organ to be used in dealing with kidney disease, and at some point, act as a full transplant option. An exciting development, and one worth watching http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/australiaandthepacific/australia/10520058/Kidney-grown-from-stem-cells-by-Australian-scientists.html

Hi, I'm Steve and have been a dialysis patient on some form of self-care or other since 1990. I've dialysed at home, abroad, in hospital, oh and had a transplant for 7 years. I work in the insurance industry for a City based business, but am very fortunate to be able to work from home 4 days a week. I hope, with my experiences, I can help others on dialysis or those facing dialysis in the future! It ain't so bad! Steve
