The AAKP came up with this helpful bit of Andriod technology…

THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF KIDNEY  PATIENTS LAUNCHES NEW APP TO HELP PATIENTS WITH NUTRITIONAL NEEDS

“On July 24, the American Association of Kidney Patients (AAKP) launched the AAKP Nutrition Guide App for all Android-based devices. The FREE App is an electronic version of the AAKP Nutrition Counter, which provides the nutrient values of more than 300 commonly consumed foods, as well as many fast food restaurant options. Nutritional values available include carbohydrates, fat, saturated fat, protein, calories, sodium, potassium, and phosphorus. These nutritional values are closely monitored in individuals with chronic kidney disease. The AAKP Nutrition App provides a convenient tool that allows patients to instantly find how foods can be incorporated into a diet and appropriate serving sizes.

The new mobile application is the latest addition to a portfolio of free, robust web tools AAKP has available for kidney patients including: the HealthLine series featuring live and recorded webinars; AAKP MyHealth – an online personal health record featuring the latest Nutrition Tracker component; and an online listing of kidney disease support groups. Android smartphone users can download the AAKP Nutrition Guide App by visiting the Apps Store on their phones or by visiting the direct link at:

Thanks to AAKP for providing this useful app for kidney patients!  I’m sorry it took me so long to find it and post about it!  If you have an Android device, this might help you manage your foods.

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.
