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.
Paul Matthews has Alport syndrome – a genetic condition that affects the tiny filters in the kidney, causing them to breakdown, eventually leading to kidney failure. Paul has had three kidney transplants and has been off dialysis for six years now. Kidney disease has affected his whole family.
Paul believes research can help his family. Making a gift today can support life-saving research.
