Diet Info

Diet and dialysis go hand in hand. Eating a variety of nutritious foods directly affects treatment.

Dialysis requires patients to limit how much fluid they drink. Controlling fluid intake prevents the accumulation of wastes, which can lead to serious complications. Also, depending on the type of dialysis you receive, you may have limits on the amount of sodium, potassium, and phosphorus you can eat. Therefore, you may have to avoid certain kinds of foods including bananas, orange juice, potatoes, melons, nuts, and chocolate.

Eating the right foods in the correct amounts can improve dialysis patients’ quality of life. Below, we’ve assembled a list or resources to provide you with more information, including tips and recipes, on how food affects your kidney disease.
