Food and nutrition are important for us all. When we eat, our body tries to use the nutrients it needs and the rest is turned into waste. One of the major jobs our kidneys have to do is to help remove that waste from our blood and also control the fluid in our bodies.
If our kidneys are not working properly the waste products can build up in our blood and have effects on our health and how we feel. It can also lead to serious complications such as fluid overload or complications for our heart beat.
Everyone is individual and there is no one single diet for everyone with kidney disease. It is important for people on dialysis to follow the tailored dietary advice given to them by their dietitian. At Beacon Renal all clients have access to a registered dietitian.
