KidneyAPPetite™ Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

I don't have an iPhone™. Why isn't there an App for android devices?

The App has been developed for use on iPhone™ and iPod touch™. The nutrition information in the App comes from the USDA National Nutrient Database. Here is the link to the database:

How were the daily nutrient guidelines developed?
The default recommended daily guidelines within KidneyAPPetite™ are based on widely recognized suggestions for the stage 5 CKD patient on hemodialysis. Specifically, the guidelines are pulled from the Council on Renal Nutrition of the National Kidney Foundation’s Pocket Guide to Nutrition Assessment of the Patient with Chronic Kidney Disease; the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies’ Dietary Reference Intakes for Calcium and Vitamin D; and the Centers for Disease Control publication, “Americans consume too much salt.”

What if I have other questions about the App?
Please call Sanofi Customer Service at 800.633.1610.

To download the App, visit the KidneyAPPetite™ website
