Renal Warrior: The Power is Within You

Wilson Du -Renal Warrior - Losing Weight - kidney transplant

Wilson Du is living proof that sometimes when looking for a hero you find one within yourself. At age of 34 he went to the doctor because of pains in ankles and knees which turned out to be gout. But to his surprise, he was also diagnosed with stage 5 kidney disease and would need dialysis to live. He also learned that he was not eligible for a kidney transplant because of his weight. At 315 lbs. a kidney transplant was just not possible. Wheelchair bound and unable to exercise, Wilson took a first painful step outside. Taking a deep breath, he decided to choose life. He shares with Lori his incredible journey and how he transformed his life and health.
