Medical nutrition therapy is fundamental for those diagnosed with chronic kidney disease or renal insufficiency. When kidney function is compromised, the kidneys do not filter or remove waste properly. Implementing a renal diet may help to promote kidney function and slow the progression to kidney failure.
Dietary requirements for those with kidney disease can be a challenge. Nancy, a NYS certified nutritionist and registered dietitian, works closely with patients and their physicians to develop a healthy sustainable nutrition program. Consultations include dietary evaluation, nutrition education, behavior modification and an individualized food plan. Dietary recommendations include specific foods and patterns of food choices with consideration for each person’s life style, food preferences, and specific health related needs
Nancy has a private practice, serving clients in Long Island, Queens and Greater New York. Online nutrition consultations are available.
