A renal diet limits foods such as potatoes, tomatoes, avocado, beans (other than green or wax), citrus, bananas, processed cheese, and processed meat, in order to feel better and achieve near normal medical lab tests.
Whether you are on dialysis or your kidneys start to fail, you can benefit from a diet that will help with kidney function. Our kidneys work like a filter, helping the body excrete waste material such as sodium, potassium, phosphate and a dietary protein called urea. When the kidneys are not functioning properly, the body starts to accumulate waste material leading to complications such as fluid overload, high blood potassium, bone disease, and weight loss. A restrictive renal diet can lessen the accumulation and its effects.
Our team of dietitians and chefs helped us create a diet for renal patients. The renal diet limits foods that are rich in potassium, phosphate and sodium. We also limit the protein portion to help with urea levels. Our goal is to ensure that renal patients will receive the right diet, in a tasty form and with a variety that will continue to make eating enjoyable. For families, our aim is to provide a delivered renal diet solution, that eliminates the added stress involved in figuring out what to cook.
