I have been diagnosed with CKD 2 years ago and I did what my Nephrologists told me. Started dialysis at the earliest and now I am doing good. I would recommend www davita dot com, they are no.1 Kidney treatment specialist in Bangalore and I have got my kidney transplant from Davita center in Bangalore.
