Mrs. Nicole France-Nicholls, Dietician at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital, urged persons diagnosed with kidney disease to follow the instructions of their physician and limit the intake of foods which may increase their risk of complications.


She explained that kidney patients must limit their intake of foods which are high in protein, potassium, phosphorous and sodium. She said that the bi-products/waste products of these are what build up in the blood to toxic levels.

Mrs. Nicholls also encouraged diabetics to be especially cautious as they are at a greater risk of developing kidney disease, and that once diabetes is managed from the beginning, they can live long and healthy lives.
