Kidney Disease with Oliver Tai, MD

One of the most important things people with kidney disease can do is to help them help themselves explains Oliver, Tai, MD, a nephrologist with The Everett Clinic. Teaching people to improve their diet can help prolong their kidneys as well as prolong their life. Sodium can cause salt and fluid retention so limiting it is very important - find foods that don't have alot of salt added. Once you decrease the salt in your diet - your taste buds will adjust and you will have an easier time detecting salty foods. Limit processed foods such as bacon and lunchmeat. Shop the perimeters of the grocery store. Cook homemade meals instead of eating out
