Phosphorus and chronic kidney disease-a challenging issue
Where do you go for information on phosphorus? People on dialysis receive education from their renal dietitian and healthcare team at the dialysis center. Their phosphorus level is checked frequently and phosphorus binders may be prescribed with meals help keep phosphorus levels lower.
Coming soon DaVita is launching a new fun way to learn about phosphorus. It’s called the Phosphorus Challenge and includes online games, polls, quizzes, points and social networking to connect you with others learning about phosphorus. Visit www.davita.com to learn more–soon you can sign up to be notified when the Phosphorus Challenge starts.
