Renal Health: Can the right nutrition delay the onset of dialysis?

Optimal nutrition plays a crucial role in maintaining renal health and may potentially delay the onset of dialysis in individuals with kidney disease. A balanced diet low in sodium, phosphorus, and potassium, while high in fiber and healthy fats, can help manage symptoms and slow the progression of kidney disease. Monitoring protein intake is essential, as excessive protein consumption can exacerbate kidney damage, while inadequate protein intake may lead to malnutrition. While nutrition alone may not completely prevent the need for dialysis, adopting a renal-friendly diet can significantly improve overall renal health and potentially delay the need for invasive interventions like dialysis or transplantation.
