Nutrition

Our dietitians in Dialysis Services have vast knowledge and years of experience in renal nutrition. They provide nutritional counseling for the dialysis patients and chronic kidney disease patients. Nutrition counseling is focused on the guidelines of the National Renal Diet, a standardized teaching tool developed with the American Dietetic Association's Renal Practice Group in conjunction with the National Kidney Foundation's Council on Renal Nutrition. Diet teaching is individualized to meet each patients needs.

Dialysis patients have monthly laboratory reports that are monitored and reviewed with them and/or  their family. Dietitians are also members of the Interdisciplinary Monthly Rounding Team.
