Every occasion brings an opportunity to make healthy choices for your kidneys. These kidney-friendly recipes provide a tasty way to enjoy your meals while taking care of yourself.
What you eat is just important as how much. People with kidney disease need to watch their potassium, phosphorus, sodium, fat and protein intake. Prepared, pre-packaged foods tend to be high in sodium, contributing to hypertension and making extra work for your kidneys. Overindulging in unhealthy snacks can quickly put on the pounds, adding to the risk of developing diabetes which, in turn, can lead to kidney disease. (However, it is important for those with kidney disease to make sure they get enough calories to remain healthy.)
