For prevention of kidney diseases and education of kidney patients, a kidney guide in regional Gujarati language was published in 2006 by Dr Sanjay Pandya. The 200-page kidney guide, which covers basic details of all major kidney problems in simple language, received an overwhelming response. The popularity and appreciation of the Gujarati kidney guide became a source of inspiration to prepare similar kidney guides in multiple languages. Dedicated nephrologists from different parts of the world joined in this mission to educate the people at large about kidney care across all boundaries.

Keeping in mind that majority of patients prefer to know about their kidney diseases in their mother tongue, kidney guides were prepared in different languages. Because kidney guides were available at very limited places, a very small number of kidney patients could take benefit of kidney guide in their own language. This was a major factor. So with an aim to provide information to a large number of patients, in September 2010, a kidney website which provides free access to the full text of a kidney guide in Gujarati language was launched. This Gujarati kidney website was a huge success. Looking at the effectiveness of this modality, kidney guides already available as well as prepared subsequently in different languages were also launched on a website titled www.kidneyEducation.com
