About the author
Testimonial by Dr.Kathryne Tapper.
Dr. Ahmad is the most intelligent, humble, kind-hearted and diligent board certified nephrologist that I know. He has over 31 years of experience as an award-winning leader in his field of kidney health and disease. As a passionate educator throughout his medical career, he felt a strong desire to convey to his patients in a clear and simple way what he thought he would like to know if he had the disease. This book was designed to bridge the gap between the latest medical knowledge of kidney disease and health care literacy within the general public.
Being a patient with chronic kidney disease as well as being a board certified physician myself, I have had the privilege of both working with Dr. Ahmad and also being one of his patients. As a result, I have the unique lens of reading this book, "The Silent Assassin" from both perspectives: patient and doctor.
I can honestly say that the wealth of knowledge you will read in this book is nothing short of AMAZING! Dr. Ahmad's dedication to public education shines through this book as he spans the discussion of kidney disease starting from a historical perspective all the way to the impact of nutrition, cost, mental health, employment and even Covid-19.
After reading this book, you will walk away feeling empowered to use the information to help you make rational and informed decisions for your overall health and well being. Dr. Ahmad's book is a MUST-READ!
