Chronic Kidney Disease

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is a progressive syndrome of renal insufficiency and failure in which the kidneys lose their ability to filter blood, concentrate urine, excrete wastes and maintain electrolyte balance. CKD is a public health issue and has been increasing in incidence world wide.

High blood pressure is a known determinent of CKD progression and sodium restriction is an important part of blood pressure control in kidney disease.

For anyone wanting more information and an indepth guide on sodium restriction, you can access some solid information here.  Sodium restriction (along with low protein diet) are critical concerns when managing CKD.

While sodium restriction and protein intake are major concerns, visit the full website here for more information.

The site provides a wealth of knowledge coming from someone who has had the full experience with CKD.  I am happy to share it with my readers.
