Kidney disease ends here.



Cycling on dialysis improves heart health

Researchers at the University of Leicester have discovered that cycling at moderate intensity for just 30 minutes during dialysis could transform the heart health of patients with kidney failure. The research also revealed healthcare cost savings of more than £1,400 per patient that could result in significant savings for the NHS.
