Eating A Pre-Dialysis Kidney Diet – Sodium, Potassium, Phosphorus and Fluids: A Kidney Disease Solution (Renal Diet HQ IQ Pre Dialysis Living) (Volume 2)
My review of the second book in the series by Mathea Ford, A Kidney Disease Solution. This particular volume is a little bit shorter page wise but is just as good on the ability of the author to present the best information on kidney disease diets you can ever imagine. Now, I am no doctor but what I look for is ease of reading and practical information that I can apply to busy daily lifestyle with predialysis kidney disease.
A Kidney Disease Solution
The best of the books so far and only because these four topics are very important to all pre dialysis kidney disease and renal diabetic sufferers. A kidney disease solution has in it included information on sodium, potassium, phosphorus and fluids. These are all very important to me and kidney disease diets.
A Kidney Disease Solution by Mathea Ford RD/LD-Sodium
One of the most important items with sodium and kidney disease is the need to reduce blood pressure due to high sodium. I like this read because Mathea give great tips on reducing sodium in your diet and offers a recipe for salt free bread.
A Kidney Disease Solution by Mathea Ford RD/LD-Potassium
One of the best ways to reduce potassium is to leach the potassium out of your vegetables. The author does a great job of explaining the best practices in leaching. Also, basic reasons for reducing potassium and the best thing I found in this book is a link to download a full list of high and low potassium foods, what a great resource! And a bonus I was not expecting and the download was very easy to perform.
A Kidney Disease Solution by Mathea Ford RD/LD-Phosphorus
A phosphorus list is also included in the downloaded list along with the potassium. I really think Mathea is at the forefront of pre-dialysis information on dieting. She is really about moderation, management and control. She does not always say that everyone should eliminate everything because everyone is different. I really have come to believe her on this.
A great chapter on white and wheat bread is an added section that I will definitely use the information for.
I believe that this series of books would be great for anyone who needs to read and educate themselves on a kidney disease solution.
