Diet Information

Maintaining a balanced diet is important when managing kidney disease.

There are certain aspects of your diet you should keep in mind. Limit consumption of sodium, potassium, phosphorus, and protein. While some of these ingredients are considered healthy, damaged kidneys cannot filter them out of the blood.

As part of your compassionate care team, your dietitian will be able to walk you through how to manage your diet while on dialysis.

You can also download and print these diet information sheets from the National Kidney Disease Education Program.
