We at Middle Tennessee Nephrology want to help you understand the impact of diet and nutrition on the health of your kidneys. Dietary discipline can make you feel better and live longer. Your diet can influence your quality of life and can slow progression of chronic kidney disease. It can also delay or even avoid need for future dialysis.
Your diet is one thing that is in your power to control. Diabetes, high blood pressure, and vascular disease are the main conditions that cause CKD. Nutritional discipline in treating these conditions is very important and can help you prevent the consequences of these conditions.
Diet and lifestyle recommendations in different stages of kidney disease:
Chronic Kidney Disease Stages 1-2
Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 3 - All of the above +
Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 4 - All of the above +
Chronic Kidney Disease Stage 5
