Healthy eating can be difficult and confusing. There are so many different diets and each one claims to lead you on your path to better health, and possibly weight loss. Should you eat low carb? High protein? High fat?
Navigating what is healthy can seem like a full-time job! And what is healthy for one person could be the opposite of what is healthy for another. In this section of the Kidney Kitchen we will help you figure out what is considered healthy for you.
We will describe the differences between healthy eating for someone without special nutritional needs, someone who has chronic kidney disease (CKD), and someone with a kidney transplant. Below are links to general guidelines for healthy eating for people with:
- No specific food restrictions
- Early stage kidney disease (CKD stages 1 and 2)
- Later stage kidney disease (CKD stages 3, 4, and 5 non-dialysis)
- Late stage kidney disease (CKD stage 5 on dialysis)
- Kidney transplant
Always talk with your doctor before starting a new eating plan.
