Have you been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease (CKD)? If you have, then working with a registered dietitian nutritionist that is knowledgeable about chronic kidney disease is crucial to slowing down the disease. An article published January 2016 in the Journal of Renal Nutrition found that over a 10 year period, patients who received medical nutrition therapy by a dietitian had significantly less decline in their glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and a lower likelihood of beginning dialysis than those who did not have nutrition therapy.

The diet for chronic renal disease is very complex. Simply taking medication prescribed by your primary care physician, or nephrologists is not enough to significantly slow down the disease. Your kidneys can no longer handle large, unlimited amounts of several nutrients. As research has proven, you will greatly benefit from consulting with a registered dietitian nutritionist who is knowledgeable about chronic kidney disease. Each patient and diagnosis is different and dietary restrictions can vary. Possible nutritional alterations include;
Registered Dietitian - Lesley Lovely www.lovelynutrition.net eat less protein (.6-.8 g/kg of standard body weight) Registered Dietitian - Lesley Lovely www.lovelynutrition.net limit sodium to 1,500-2,000 mg/day

The earlier you begin to work with a dietitian, the better. Unfortunately, most patients are not informed that their kidney function has been declining. And even those that are informed are rarely referred to a dietitian to help them learn how to alter their dietary intake to slow down the disease. Medication from a physician can only accomplish so much.
