Dialysis cookbook

cookbookHey Y’all!

Davita has a cookbook for dialysis patients that I figured I should pass along.   You also have a chance to get singed up for the Davita newsletter, a recipe alert, and the Davita Destinations that gets you information about places to travel and receive dialysis.   You have to create a Davita account to access their dialysis-related website but it’s worth it.  They have a forum and lots of good information.

If you already have a Davita account, you have to create a bogus account.  LOL  But it’s worth it to have the cookbooks.  One is for Diabetes-friendly recipes and the other is for Dialysis-friendly recipes.  Let me know if you have trouble with this link.  I hope it works.

About DevonTexas

I am a person with ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) which means my kidneys don't work. Forty or so years ago that would have been a death sentence but today there is Dialysis which means I could be hooked up to a machine that would clean my blood as the kidneys should. Three days a week, I went to a dialysis center and had too very large needles stuck in my arm to remove and replace my blood as it passed through a process where it was cleaned and the fluid was removed, a process taking a little over four hours each time. In November 2017, I received a kidney transplant from a deceased donor. My life went into overdrive. With a "new" functioning kidney, I no longer had to go to a dialysis center and my days were not open to be lived rather than recovering from dialysis which meant dialyzing for three days and resting for 4 days a week. I work full-time and often 50 hours per week. It is something I never imagined. I highly recommend it! HeeHee I want to advance knowledge about dialysis and transplant so that others can learn from my experience and mistakes. We shouldn't have to reinvent the wheel, eh? There is so much to be learned and experienced about our predicament. There are vast resources available to support us and enrich our lives but many patients don't know about them. There are also many issues that we have to deal with whether we want to or not. So I blog about them in www.DevonTexas.com All comments are confidential until I approve them. If you don't want your comment public, let me know and I will respect that. So, feel free to leave a comment. I also blog in LegacyTales in WordPress if you are interested in the ramblings of a Old Man. Give a peek and let me know what you think. https://legacytales.wordpress.com/ Enjoy.

    Thank you! It is a great site for us. The problem is that a lot of dialysis patients are older and don`t have a pc or don`t know how to use one. My daughter takes one of my recipes each month and prints it large and I take it to dialysis and they make copies and hand it out to patients. I get a lot of feedback that way and hopefully help someone have better labs.
