Leicester Kidney Lifestyle Team

The Leicester Kidney Lifestyle Team is a large multidisciplinary research group which aims to help kidney patients achieve the best possible health and wellbeing through appropriate lifestyle management.

The Leicester Kidney Lifestyle Team was set up in its current form in 2011, as a small team of just 3 researchers. Originally we concentrated on researching the role of exercise to improve the health of kidney patients, and since then we have grown and expanded our research to include other aspects of lifestyle. Our research aims to:

Understand how kidney disease and its symptoms impact the day-to-day lives of people who live with it, and what patients and their families want in the way of help, advice and support

Understand how and why kidney disease affects the heart, the muscles and the overall health and wellbeing of the patients

Understand how aspects of lifestyle management such as physical activity and nutrition can help to prevent or improve these problems

Develop and test ways of delivering effective lifestyle management to kidney patients within the context of the NHS

Through this integrated approach we strive to produce high quality research and to involve patients, carers, healthcare professionals and stake holders as partners to ensure that we meet the needs and expectations of our ultimate user-groups.
