This project will provide a dietetics programme for patients diagnosed with kidney disease.

The dietetics programme will seek to impact over 2000 patients at Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg Academic Hospital and at Mediclinic Morningside.

As it is very important for kidney disease patients to lead a healthy lifestyle. As patients are diagnosed, their diet has to change immediately as there are many foods that can affect their treatment. Some foods that patients are not allowed include potatoes, spinach, tomatoes, anything containing salt, citrus fruits and many more.

It is very important for us to ensure that the patients and their families are aware of the dangers of unhealthy eating, and how they need to change their lifestyle. Due to children with kidney diseases inability to get rid of waste and fluids, most children have a daily fluid restriction, which gets addressed and monitored by the Dietitian. more
