Dietitian & Nutrition Consultation

Most patients on dialysis need to limit the amount of sodium, potassium, and phosphorus in in their diet. Be sure to talk with your healthcare provider about your specific nutrition needs. Your needs may vary depending on the type of dialysis treatment you receive.

    Your dietitian will work on your overall wellness, customizing a diet plan that suits you and your individual goals. Working closely with other specialists, we put together a balanced nutrition plan to bring you back in shape while ensuring that your sodium, phosphorous and potassium levels are in the ‘safe’ region.

    • Eat more high protein foods.
