Long term diabetes and hypertension are the leading causes of kidney disease. Kidney disease cannot be cured but it is proven that with changes in diet and lifestyle the disease can be controlled. With the right knowledge you will be able to take charge and control your health.
We will work with your primary care doctor or nephrologist to provide you with the best individual meal plan while helping you enjoy the foods you love. Controlling your blood pressure and/or blood sugar levels will be of high priority and we will work with you to achieve this.
Your kidneys are the filtration organ in the body. All foods, medications and supplements consumed are filtered through the kidneys and can potentially harm them. We will conduct a thorough evaluation of your food intake pattern, as well as a review of your medications and supplements.
Goal of medical nutrition therapy include:
Blood Pressure control
Blood sugar control
Reduction of Sodium intake
Reduction of Potassium intake
Frequency of follow up visits will be determined individually
