Healthy Eating Guide for Kidney Disease

Diabetes is a leading cause of kidney disease, which currently affects roughly 31 million people in the United States. Because people with this chronic kidney disease must make changes to their diet to control the condition, the American Association of Kidney Patients has put together a guide to healthy eating that contains nutrition data for over 300 common foods, as well as menu items from 11 fast food restaurants. Information is included for carbohydrate, fat, saturated fat, protein, calories, sodium, potassium, and phosphorous levels.

The 36-page booklet has been reviewed by a renal dietitian and is available in English and Spanish. A free PDF version of the guide can be downloaded here[1], or a hard copy can be ordered for $1.50 by clicking here[2] or calling (800) 749-2257, extension 3.
