Diet & Nutrition


It is important to eat a proper diet when on dialysis. Eating well can help you feel better and make your dialysis treatments more effective. Dialysis patients need to limit their phosphorous, sodium, and potatssium intake. Each dialysis facility has a dietitian on staff who can help you develop the right meal plan for you.
