Nutrition & Kidney Disease

Nutrition is one of the most important components to all aspects of health but particularly kidney health. Depending on the cause of CKD, a proper diet can slow the rate of progression of kidney failure. Proper nutrition can also make life on dialysis more comfortable and assist with the dialysis treatments. There are great advancements in medicine but the platform that nutrition provides is what makes the difference. Global Kidney Health is dedicated to providing solutions for those seeking health benefits through nutrition. Our nutrition section is always evolving and packed with new information, ideas, and recipes.

Suggested nutrition varies based on the stage of chronic kidney disease.
