A Compassionate Approach
Committed to caring for the whole person.
Individual Nutrition Counseling
A healthy diet can help prolong kidney function in people with kidney disease or other conditions that affect the kidneys. At CHI Franciscan, we offer medical nutrition counseling for our kidney dialysis patients.
Nutrition counseling from registered dietitians
Many of our registered dietitians specialize in chronic kidney disease (CKD). They offer one-on-one nutrition counseling services for people with CKD or kidney stones.
Your dietitian works with you and your physician to get a complete picture of your kidney function, overall health (including other medical conditions) and nutritional status. He or she then develops a comprehensive meal plan with appropriate foods to ensure that you get enough of the right nutrients for optimal health.
Ask your physician for a referral to one of our expert dietitians for our counseling services.
Healthy recipes for kidney disease
Cooking at home is a great way to control the amount of protein, sodium, phosphorus, potassium, fluid, calories, vitamins and minerals that you consume. We’ve developed recipes to help you achieve the proper nutrition levels while undergoing dialysis.
