Renal Diet For Dialysis Patients: Protein Supplements for dialysis patients

Episode 199:Renal Diet For Dialysis Patients: Protein Supplements for dialysis patients. Chances are you’ve been encouraged to eat more protein if you’re on dialysis. But in many cases, dialysis patients just can’t seem to eat enough protein. That’s when protein supplements come in. Protein supplements are often recommended for dialysis patients to fill that gap between how much protein you eat and how much protein you need.

In this discussion, we review why protein is important for dialysis. We also review what makes a good protein supplement for dialysis patients with some specific examples from a renal dietitian that has worked in dialysis and recommended these same supplements to her patients.
