“We created these short videos to show people how easy and fun it can be to prepare kidney-friendly meals,” said Sara Colman, RDN, CDE, manager for DaVita.com nutrition and blogger for Kidney Diet Tips. “We hope these recipes inspire those with kidney disease to get cooking!”

The recipes featured in these videos include:

More than 31 million Americans have kidney disease, which can progress to end stage renal disease. Most are unaware of their condition, as the disease is often symptomless until its late stages. Individuals at higher risk for kidney disease include those with diabetes or hypertension, as well as adults age 65 and older, African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans.

As kidney function declines, protein waste and minerals become hard to remove, and diseased kidneys must work harder to get rid of them. Each person’s kidney diet prescription is different, but the main nutrients limited in kidney diets include protein, phosphorus, potassium and sodium.
