Eating Right to Maintain Kidney Health

A well-balanced diet consisting of mostly plant-based foods like fruits and vegetables, whole grains and beans benefits your blood pressure, waistline and heart and creates less work for your kidneys. Drink six to eight glasses of water or other healthful, low-calorie beverages every day. And limit or avoid foods high in sodium (salt).

Ask you doctor what is the right diet for you. If you are on dialysis, your diet is drastically different.
