Preserve kidney function with the power of nutrition

Choose one of our nutrition programs to get started on your kidney health journey.

Kidney disease is serious business.

Your nephrologist has just diagnosed you with Stage 4 or 5 kidney disease and lets you know you are enroute to dialysis. You may have gone home and cried until your eyes hurt. Or sat in dumbfounded silence as you made sure that the name at the top of the page with the blood work was actually yours. How could this now be your new reality?

Once you settled into this new reality you dug deep and decided you wanted to fight this. With a deep breath you start on a journey to preserve YOUR kidney function and keep dialysis as far away as you can.

Of course that means you had questions. You heard diet makes a difference for people with kidney disease. So you asked your doc what to do. “Eat less meat and salt” he or she said. That didn’t feel right or seem like enough. The internet was beyond confusing but you still are determined to find the right answer about how diet can help you.


You just want to figure out how to preserve your kidney function and know your plan is working.
