Nutrient Tracking Made Easy:
Download the Free
Kidney APPetite App!

If you are on dialysis, you know that getting the right amount of nutrients and limiting your daily fluid intake is very important for your body. KidneyAPPetite is a FREE app for iPhone and iPad designed to help dialysis patients track fluids and the nutrients in the foods they eat each day.

The American Kidney Fund has partnered with Sanofi Renal to bring this free app to dialysis patients, nephrologists and renal dietitians. Kidney APPetite helps patients track, manage and adjust their daily nutrient intake to achieve their nutrition goals. It can be downloaded for free from the Apple iTunes Store.

How It Works

KidneyAPPetite contains nutrition information on nearly 8,200 foods and beverages from the USDA National Nutrient Database. The app allows patients to customize the daily guidelines to match the personalized nutrition and fluid guidelines they have been prescribed.

When patients enter the foods they eat and the beverages they drink, KidneyAPPetite provides a daily summary of phosphorus, potassium, sodium, calcium, and protein intake. It will also tell how close patients are to their daily fluid limit, daily calorie goal and daily carbohydrate goal.

  Kidney APPetite helps dialysis patients keep track of their fluids and the nutrients in their food day by day. 
  Patients can customize the daily values to match their personalized nutrition plans. 
  Using information from the USDA National Nutrient Database, Kidney APPetite calculates the fluids and nutrients in each meal.
