What to Eat when You Have Chronic Kidney Disease

Eating well is key to maintaining your health when you are on dialysis. When you have chronic kidney disease, it’s important to consult a dietician to create a diet that will help you preserve your kidney function for longer and slow down the progression of kidney disease.

Your dietician will talk to you about the nutrients and minerals you need to manage your kidney disease, such as protein, potassium, salt (sodium), sugar, and phosphate. Your diet may differ depending on your dialysis treatment plan.
