“My new CKD book came in the mail today! I asked mom if she could order it on Amazon. It’s not a recipe book, per se, but it teaches you in a non-clinical way how to and what to eat; and it does have recipes for meals and sauces. 

It breaks down the categories of food in regards to all the big ones like protein, phosphorus, potassium, and salt, etc. It’s based on stage 3 CKD since it’s most prevalent in society, but can be modified for patients off and on dialysis. It goes through all the information with humor and will be interesting to read. It’s FULL of over 250 pages of in-depth information, charts, and formulas, etc. So it’s worth the price.”

Did you know?

Your nutritional needs will be determined by what stage you are in.

The majority of info and recipes available are geared for Stage 3 (the largest group).

This means, if you are not in stage 3, adjustments to those recipes you are using must be made.

If you are in stage 3, there is a very wide nutritional gap. Those in lower stage 3b cannot eat the same as those in upper stage 3a.

Adjustments must be made.

Under or Over consuming those nutrients will lead to other health issues or progression.
