Diet plays an integral role in the treatment of kidney disease. Eating the right foods and avoiding wrong foods can help patients stay healthier.
Although somewhat overwhelming at first, many people who have renal disease, particularly those on dialysis, find that following a special diet quickly becomes a part of life. Sharing a meal with friends and family is an important part of everyday life and it is something that is still possible for those following a renal diet.
With advice from your renal dietician, it is possible to adapt menus and cook delicious meals that meet your own specific dietary needs. Nevertheless, the majority of recipe books tend to be full of ideas that are not suitable, or adaptable, for someone on a renal diet. In fact, the National Kidney Federation is often approached by people wanting ideas for simple yet tasty recipes, which is why we are delighted to once again have been involved in the production of this recipe book.
I am sure that both renal patients and renal dieticians will find it a valuable resource when planning menus, ether for everyday use or for special occasions. After all, by making small changes, food and eating can still be accessible, easy and fun.
