Renal Vitamins: Vitamin D & Fat-Soluble Vitamins for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients
Episode 156:Renal Vitamins: Vitamin D & Fat-Soluble Vitamins for Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients. Vitamins (and minerals) are essential organic substances needed in small amounts in a diet. There are two main categories of vitamins: water-soluble and fat-soluble. Fat-soluble vitamins require help from the liver to “repackage” them and make them safe to float through the bloodstream, or they will be stored in our fat tissue for future use. People with CKD are often deficient in Vitamin D and other fat-soluble vitamins. Renal Dietitian Jen Hernandez will discuss Vitamin D and the fat-soluble vitamins for kidney patients.
