Your Diet

Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) and Nutrition

Good nutrition is an important part of your therapy. There are recommendations for the kind and amount of different nutrients you should eat. A good state of nutrition is like a good state of well-being. Undernourishment or malnutrition increases the risk of illness.

The renal diet can be challenging. Your renal dietician will develop an individual diet for you. Together you will choose food you like to eat and ensure that your food contains all the important nutrients which your body needs. If you follow the recommended diet, it helps to minimise complications related to an imbalanced food intake.
