In this section you can find out about the experiences of living with Alport Syndrome by seeing and hearing people share their personal stories on film. Researchers travelled all around the UK to talk to 36 people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as the emotional side of living with Alport Syndrome, different types of treatment and medication and the impact of Alport Syndrome on work, relationships and lifestyle. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring. This resource has been dedicated to the memory of Anthony Whitworth.
