Demystifying the Renal Diet

Renal disease is a worldwide health crisis that places a large economic burden on society. Singapore has one of the highest rates of kidney failure in the world with diabetes and hypertension as the two leading causes of kidney failure. The rising trend is of concern in view of the silver tsunami and increasing rates of obesity.

Renal patients are loaded with information regarding various aspects of their care, nutrition included – whether from healthcare professionals, friends and relatives or the internet. Patients who follow non evidence-based renal diet fads/ trends may run the risk of faster kidney disease progression, experience unpleasant symptoms of fluid overload, uremia and loss of appetite leading to malnutrition.

By attending this presentation, you will increase in awareness of the common misconceptions surrounding the mystifying renal diet, gain an understanding of the principles of a renal diet and why the renal diet is important in helping patients to enjoy a better quality of life.
