A healthy diet can slow kidney damage and prolong life

How I can help….

Dietitians are the experts in nutrition and can help you make the right food choices without the need for complicated restrictions or diets. My Nutrition Clinic Renal Dietitian Jaimon Kelly’s PhD studies in chronic kidney disease are helping to improve kidney health through nutrition. He is an experienced educator and lectures at Bond University, delivers GP and nurse training, and public workshops.

How can you help your kidneys with diet?

  • Get the right mix of nutrients to protect your kidneys’ health.

  • Less salt but loads of flavour. A low salt diet can significantly reduce blood pressure and protect kidney function.

  • The right amount of protein to limit kidney damage without risk of malnutrition.

  • The right types of fruits and vegetables to reduce kidney injury without producing high potassium levels.

  • Suitable drinks and habits to help meet fluid restrictions without excessive thirst.

  • Appropriate amounts and types of fats and sugars to maintain a healthy weight and prevent further damage through better control of hypertension and diabetes.
