A Message for Kidney Disease Patients We at Indiana Kidney Specialists want to ensure our patients, their family and support staff, our Indiana Kidney staff and physicians remain healthy, protected, and safe as the COVID-19 virus spreads. Much like the flu all patients should take precautions to reduce the spread of COVID 19.
Maintaining a kidney friendly diet is an important part of slowing kidney disease. Here are two common problems: high blood pressure and diabetes – both major risk factors. Quite simply, eating kidney friendly foods and maintaining a balance of fluids in your body will help to keep your weight under control. This may also keep your blood pressure where it should be. Eating three balanced meals a day will also regulate your blood sugar. You may also need a snack at night. This is especially important if you have diabetes.
