heartful of vegetables While every person on dialysis will have a different recommended diet depending on their personal treatment plan, eating a balanced and nutritious diet will improve your overall health and mood. At our kidney centers we have nutritionists available to you to help you become familiar with kidney-friendly food. Work with one of our nutritionists and develop a nutrition plan specifically tailored to your personal needs.

What Changes Need To Be Made?

While each patient’s diet will differ depending on treatment method and personal results, the four nutrients that should be limited in almost every case are as follows:

  • Fluids
  • Phosphate
  • Potassium
  • Sodium

In order to fully understand what your diet should look like, reach out to one of our nutritionists and they will help you develop a nutrition plan. Your dialysis dietitian will teach you how to select foods that are kidney-friendly. Every dialysis diet is different depending on your treatment plan.
