Kidneys help to remove excess water, salts and waste products from the body. If you have kidney disease, it means your kidneys are finding it harder to rid the body of these products.

Diet plays a huge role in managing kidney disease. It can help reduce the build up of fluid and waste products and this makes you feel better!

Any dietary advice for kidney disease must be individualised as it is based on your own situation including your blood results and how well your kidneys are functioning. There is no one size fits all OR “special diet” for the kidneys.

So if you have kidney disease and would like to find out more how diet can help, then search for a Dietitian in your local area to book an appointment.
