Kidney Friendly Recipes

Get Inspired & Eat Kidney-Friendly!

Diet and nutrition are very important to helping individuals with kidney diseases live well. Depending on your Stage of kidney disease, and the presence of other possible health conditions such as diabetes, your recommended kidney diet can change over time. It's important to discuss with your healthcare team your specific nutritional needs. There is no "one-size fits all" meal plan, so ask to be referred to a Renal Dietitian to get specific help and recommendations that fit your needs, lifestyle and palate. Click here to find a renal dietitian near you!
