Abstract
Your eating habits can be an important way to manage your health, especially if you have chronic kidney disease (CKD). You may need to change your eating habits, depending on how well your kidneys are working. Healthy kidneys remove waste products and fluids from your body. With CKD, your kidneys no longer do this. Following your nutrition guidelines are an important part of your treatment. Each person’s nutrition guidelines are different. Your guidelines are made just for you. Your guidelines will help to keep products (like potassium, phosphorus, sodium, and fluids) from building up in your body and making you sick. This pamphlet gives information about protein, sodium (salt), potassium, and phosphorus. It includes a sample meal plan, guidelines for measuring portions, and information about reading food labels, adding calories and flavour, and tips for controlling your fluid intake. Lists of high sodium and higher potassium foods to avoid are provided. An emergency meal plan and a grocery list are included.
