March is National Kidney Month and National Nutrition Month. When you are living with kidney disease, food and nutrition play a big part in your overall health and disease management. Renal dietitians are experts in the nutritional needs of patients in every stage of kidney disease. Working with a dietitian can help you understand your unique needs.
During this webinar, Carolyn Feibig, renal dietitian, will answer questions that you have about:
- Eating and nutrition for pre-dialysis stages of kidney disease
- Eating and nutrition while on dialysis
- Nutritional requirements for a transplant and how you can prepare
Please submit your questions when you register for this webinar. Carolyn will answer submitted questions during the first 40 minutes of the presentation and will reserve 15-20 minutes to answer live audience questions at the end of the webinar.
