Diet and Nutrition

Managing your kidney diet needs can be quite challenging. A group of Registered Dietitians specializing in Nephrology will be able to guide you in your dietary choices and will play an integral part of your health care. There is no standard “kidney diet” because every individual is different and their needs unique. Dietary advice will be given to you by a registered dietitian based on a few factors such as stage of your renal disease, laboratory results, type of treatment you are on, and presence of other medical conditions.

Always speak to your registered dietitian if you need help fining reliable nutrition information online that is specific to your individual dietary needs.
