Can you recommend a good renal/diabetic diet?

A Carbohydrate Consistent diet is the best for Diabetes.  

If you are on Dialysis and your labs levels are abnormal, then your Potassium, Sodium or Phosphorus may need to be restricted while your Protein needs to be increased. If you are not on Dialysis, your protein will need to be restricted with the possibility of Potassium, Sodium and Phosphorus to be restricted also--all while keeping the Carbohydrates consistent.

We recommend meeting with a dietitian to learn how to combine the Carbohydrate Consistent diet with the restricted diet that renal issues involve.

Registered Dietitians can provide Medical Nutrition Therapy related to blood pressure, blood sugar, preventive care, gluten free needs and some GI disorders, food allergy, decreased kidney function, weight loss/gain and more.

Most insurances cover the cost of nutrition therapy at the request of your physician. Check with your insurance company to find out if your plan covers classes, and talk to your doctor about providing a written request.
