Affiliate Links

Some companies operate affiliate programs, meaning if you purchase the product or service by following a link on our site we could receive a commission. There are often conditions on time, visits and other factors that frequently negate any commission.  We use a tool that automatically checks if link destinations have affiliate programs available. If they do, the tool modifies the link to use the available program.

 

Our main focus is to provide convenient links to reputable sources for the product/service we use and believe in. Operating an affiliate program is not a condition for linking: keen pricing, service, and reputation is. We use the commission we receive to support the site, video production, and donate to the National Kidney Fund. It also allows us to reduce our reliance on advertising.

What your Kidney Dietitian should have told you but didn't

When you get diagnosed with Kidney disease, one of the first things to happen is getting referred to a dietician so that you can be placed on a chronic kidney disease diet.  And chances are, it was little IF ANY help to you.  As a matter of fact, my first SEVERAL dietitians gave me absolutely nothing useful for my kidney diet plan.  

 

Getting diagnosed with CKD is a Life-Altering Event, and I was ready to make the changes needed.  Like so many of you, I had to start doing my own research on what to eat and what not to eat.  Searching the Internet will give contradictory answers and a lot of people, including doctors, keep repeating the same basic renal diet guidelines.  It took a lot of effort, but after emailing and calling researchers and doctors all around the world, I was able to find dietitians who gave real advice – those with patients who were seeing their Kidney function improve!  To truly fight kidney disease, you need a diet specific to you today.  Yes, I said you TODAY.  That is different from just you.

 

You Chronic Kidney Disease Diet
What you should and should not eat is specific to the results of your most recent labs – your bloodwork and urine analysis.  Your labs are your own personal guide to improving your kidney health.  Every time you get your lab work done, you must get a copy of the results – do not settle for your doctor giving you the highlights reel, you need a complete copy.  You may be lucky and able to access your results online, making it easy to track your progress.  No matter what the method, you must always get a copy of your lab results.
