Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day is celebrated annually on the second Wednesday of March. We’re excited to share their special day as Renal Dietitians mean so much to us. Renal Dietitians are Nutritionists who possess advanced educated in the dietary needs of people with chronic kidney disease, who are on dialysis or who have a kidney transplant. The kidney diet (renal diet or dialysis diet) can be one of the most challenging aspects of living with chronic kidney disease. Regular consultations with a Renal Dietitian is essential to maintaining our health, retaining kidney function and helping us control our labs. They help us know what foods are good (and bad) for us, and also help us come up with meals that are satisfying and enjoyable as well.
Here are some great articles, podcasts and Hope Week presentations by and featuring some of our favorite Renal Dietitians. Take a moment to read, listen and watch.
