Dietary Information for Kidney Patients


The kidneys normally remove waste products (such as urea, potassium, phosphate and extra fluid) from the blood. When the kidneys are not working properly the waste products can build up. Making some changes to what you eat may help to control the levels of these waste products in the blood.


Dietary advice after starting dialysis or following a kidney transplant

If you are starting dialysis treatment or having a kidney transplant, the dietitian at the kidney unit will see you to provide further dietary information. If you have not yet seen a dietitian, ask the doctor or nurse to make a referral to them.
