Dialysis and Nutrition Labels

Here it is!  The Nutrition Label explained especially for dialysis patients!  Yay!

Thank you to the persons who produced this.  Their names are at the bottom-right on the picture.  I’m in a hurry right now but I’ll be sure to give them all due credit later.  In the meantime, this is wonderful information.

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 can be hooked up to a machine that will clean my blood as the kidneys should. Three days a week, I go to a center and have too very large needles stuck in my arm to remove and replace my blood as it passes through a process where it's cleaned and the fluid is removed, a process taking a little over four hours each time. I want to advance knowledge about dialysis so that other patients 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. 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. Enjoy.

    How can I get a copy of the Quick Guide to Food Labels for those with kidney disease in a PDF format? I am a renal dietitian and would love to use this to educate my patients
