Peering in the pantry

Reading a food label doesn’t have to be confusing or overwhelming! Our guest, Registered Dietitian and Board-Certified Renal Nutritionist, Jen Hernandez, is here to show us how to read food labels for kidney health.

A healthy diet is crucial for people that need to be mindful of their kidney health. When the kidneys stop working, they can’t effectively remove toxins, excess water, and unneeded vitamins/minerals from the bloodstream. (1)

Only your healthcare practitioner or renal dietitian can create a tailored diet plan for your kidney health. But, learning how to read food labels for kidney health is still a crucial part of managing overall health and a skill anyone can learn!
