Plant-Fed Kidneys: The Diet to Slow Progression of Chronic Kidney Disease

Jennifer Moore, 24/05/2019 - 116 páginas

While heart disease, cancer, and even diabetes awareness dominate the public's attention, a community of Chronic Kidney Disease patients exists in the background. For the survivors who live to experience dialysis, their quality of life deteriorates.

Through 20 years of research and practice, Jennifer Moore has witnessed how a low-protein, plant-based diet vastly improves the health of CKD patients by slowing or halting CKD progression. In turn, patients may prolong or perhaps even avoid dialysis.

Unfortunately, most pre-end-stage renal disease patients never receive nutrition advice. Furthermore, many dietitians feel inadequately trained to teach kidney patients who are not yet on dialysis. Aware of these gaps within the renal community, Jennifer was prompted to share her knowledge. Plant-Fed Kidneys shines a light to help patients in darkness.
