diet

It is important to adopt a healthy life style as promoted by national bodies –
this includes taking regular exercise, avoiding excess weight gain, avoiding a
diet high in salt and avoiding smoking.

Healthy eating should be important in everyone’s life, but sadly not everyone thinks this is so.  This information will help you to understand more about the foods you need to eat and avoid as a kidney patient.  Please also ask your renal consultants for more information as everyone is on a different journey and there maybe some advice given that is specific to you.

It is never too late for anyone to make positive changes that benefit health and well being.
