With the number of kidney failures drastically increasing and more people on dialysis than ever before, a well regulated diet is needed more than ever. If your kidneys fail, you will need to change your diet. At times, it is merely changing the way you prepare some of your favorite foods. Whether you are on dialysis or facing kidney problems in your life, a change in diet may prolong your kidney use and in many cases, your life.

It is estimated that in a few short years, there will be over a million people in the United States taking dialysis treatments. With the baby boomers coming of age and the number of new kidney dialysis patients beginning treatments, it will be a challenge for all of them to learn the best way to enjoy their lives with kidney failure.

This book gives much needed information and recipes that will help them adjust to those changes.

A dietitian should be available at the treatment center and they can review your blood test results with you on a regular basis and make recomendations on diet. Always listen to their advice. As your body changes, so shall your diet. In this book are some recipes that can help you maintain a healthier life.

Kidney failure was once fatal. Today, with the many advancements in the field of nephrology, and the work of the National Kidney Foundation, they have come a long way in prolonging lives.

Diet is one of the most important changes you will face. Make healthy choices and be open to change. Adjust your diet as your body's needs change and you may find life to be a lot more enjoyable.

From the Author:

It is estimated that there are over 350,000 dialysis patients in America. That number is believed t triple in the next few years. With the baby boomers coming of age, their kidneys are failing and the need for treatment and diet changes is going to change as well.

If you, or someone you know, has kidney failure, please remember that diet is a very important part of any treatment plan. This is not a one size fits all cook book. The recipes that work best for you today may not be the same ones that work best for you next week or next month. The right recipes for you will likely change as your body's needs change.

With kidney failure, you will find the blood tests that are performed at the dialysis center change. Those test results will determine your diet. One month you may need more or less potassium, for example. As your needs change, so should your diet. The foods you eat and the way you prepare them will make a difference in those test results. Your dietitian can explain more about this to you.

I have friend and family who take dialysis treatments and some are permitted certain foods and others are restricted. The foods or restrictions on the diet are based on the individual and their own blood test results and so for any person to write a book that meets the needs of everyone on any given day is just not possible. As you read the book, and find recipes you like, always check with your dietitian to determine your own needs at that time. Be safe in trying these, or any, recipes.

When writing this book, I wanted to write not only recipes, but information about the kidneys and dialysis. It was very confusing when a loved one learned they would require dialysis. It was a life changing decision. Making the information available to those who are faced with the decision of what to do now that their kidneys have failed was important. I thought the book itself would be a great way to introduce them to kidney failure, dialysis, and diet changes all in one. It would be my hope that this book, and others like it, would make its way to the hands of those who are facing the same challenges my loved one faced. And that by giving it to them at the time they are going through this same thing would help them to understand dialysis and treatment options and that their love of food is not something in the past.

That is a pretty big order, I must admit, but it is one that I believe would benefit kidney dialysis patients, those who care for their friends and loved ones and those about to become dialysis patitents.

About the Author:

The author has been a caregiver for nearly 25 years. Most recently to a family member with kidney failure. During the illness, information was, at best, confusing. In this book, he tries to make sense of the differen types of dialysis, diet, kidney functions and more. While this book may be titled Cookbook, it is so much more than cooking. It is understanding the body, and the options available.

The author writes this book to provide much needed information to the million people who have, or are expected to, experience kidney failure. In just a few short years, it is estimated there will be over a million people in the United States alone with kidney failure. Many will choose dialysis as their treatment option. Having been through the uncertainties with a loved one, the author wanted to make this information available to those who may need it.

Remember the two main causes of kidney failure are high blood pressure and diabetes. Eat healthy and stay healthy as long as you can.
