Makes total sense to me. If you've gotten to the transplant stage without figuring out how you got there, the chances you'll take good care of a new kidney are too small to risk.

Those who think they have no time for a healthy lifestyle will sooner or later will have to find time for illness.

Informed Patients more likely to get kidney transplants
